Can You Name This Flower?

Let’s test your garden smarts.  I thought it would be fun to take a photo from my garden, and enlarge it to show only the bloom,  and see if you can name it. 

A few hints:

  • it does not mind if the soil is dry
  • it flowers all spring and summer
  • the flowers come in a variety of colors
  • hardy in zones 8-10

Can you guess the name of today's bloom? Take the poll here: your answers in the comments below.  Check back on July 3 or later to see the correct answer and how everyone voted.

Poll is over.

The results of this poll were these:


The correct answer was Ice Plant or Lampranthus. See the succulent style leaves? Those were the big hint. Did you guess correctly?
