Lithops terricolor at Prince Albert

The Three Rivers Heritage Site, one of the few sites in South Africa where a national heritage site was created because of the presence of a succulent plant, is close to the town of Prince Albert. The site was originally fenced with the financial support of the British Cactus & Succulent Society to protect the succulent Bijlia dilatata.

We visited this site on 5 June 2018, a few weeks after good rain had fallen in the area. The Lithops terricolor plants that grow alongside the Bijlia were all out of their hiding places under the soil and were extremely plentiful.
