Umbilicus horizontalis

Umbilicus horizontalis or U. gaditanus Horizontal Navelwort

Ombligo de Venus

This attractive succulent is native to the Mediterranean area in rocky outcrops. it is different to other Navelwort, whose flowers droop, in the fact that these flowers remain horizontal. It can grow to 25cms (10 inches) tall. The leaves are often round rather than wavy as shown here. it flowers from March to May.
