Last year was my first winter in Ararat.
Lots of frosts.
Steep learning curve.
Don't stick those succulents out too early - some of our worst frosts were in Spring.
Makes you wonder how plants grow in places where it snows.

I didn't know that was the name for that plant. It's one of my most hardy succulents too - I planted it in city garden at the front of a bed and it has formed a lovely carpet that looks spectacular when it flowers.
Has yours flowered yet?

Ok. That explains a few things. I too have just moved to frostier climes and have not a clue about which of my city plants will survive. Looks like my once plump,juicy and un-pock marked agave attenuata are gonners.

Beautiful, beautiful shots of one of my favourites.

I suppose succulents are predominately water and would have frozen and been pretty shocked about it all! Good to know for if I ever move to a frostier place. :)
