 I love the way these plants cling to a man made limestone wall. Nourished by the winter's rain they are thriving at the moment. In a month or so, after flowering, some will curl up into a tight ball to conserve moisture under the fierce Symi heat, others will shrivel up and some will die until next the next rain in October. You will only find them on a shady North facing wall though.
