In the gardens


EGA Erfurt / Thuringia / Germany

The EGA (Erfurter Garten Austellung – Erfurtian Garden Exhibition) is not a Botanical Garden, not at all, but it harbours a collection of succulent plants, including three Ceropegia species, one of them is a quite old and very large Ceropegia fusca.:

c.fusca.190816.1

The second one is the usual and overly common Ceropegia linearis ssp. woodii.:

c.l.woodii.190816.1

The last one is Ceropegia stapeliiformis, which is climbing through a large Euphorbia bush; photographed through a very worn acrylic glass window.:

Botanical Garden Jena / Thuringia / Germany

There appear to be only two species present in that garden, Ceropegia cimiciodora, a very large specimen that grows more or less freely within the surrounding Vegetation (it has already reached a height of about 2 m so far and still grows on).:

The second one is the usual Ceropegia linearis ssp. woodii, however, in this case it is at least a plant of the ‘debilis‘ form (it seems to be there unintended as it is not labelled at all).:

Botanical Garden Bochum / North Rhine-Westphalia / Germany

… I was there today for … perhaps the fifth time or so … there are only three plants of the genus to be found (actually there seem to be additional ones hidden somewhere as usual for Botanical Gardens)

… here we have Ceropegia linearis ssp. woodii – the ‘debilis‘ form:

c.l.woodii.110714.1

… and the same species but the more usual form:

c.l.woodii.110714.2

There are also some stems of Ceropegia stapeliiformis lying around in the succulent plants house – so, altogether ‘very special’ plants … wow ….

Botanical Garden Berlin / Berlin / Germany

… just a photograph of a very attractive and large specimen of Ceropegia denticulata (sorry for the poor quality, the plant was behind a dirty glass panel).

Botanical Garden Dresden / Saxony / Germany

Here is another clone of Ceropegia linearis ssp. woodii, the plant itself looks quite odd, as it grows somewhat zigzaggy.

This may in fact be some kind of hybrid with a bit Ceropegia occulta in it.
