Bottlebrush by Althytrion Bottlebrush by Althytrion
Two flower spikes of Orostachys look like bottlebrushes in the evening sun. :aww:

Orostachys is a genus of succulent plants related to houseleek, Sempervivum, and Sedum. The species are native to Siberia/Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, China, Korea and Japan. They form rosettes that usually flower in the second year, already - and die afterwards, but the seeds can be sown easily, and in many cases, offsprings are produced, as well. The name derives from Greek ὄρος, meaning "mountain", and σταχυς, meaning "eye of the grain", so Orostachys means "spike of the mountain" and indicates what these plants look like, and where they use to grow in the wild. ;)
