I thought this was a gorgeous sight when I saw it… I still do.. the plant in the spotlight of the sun, the dappled shade… the background… combined with the harmonious colours of this ‘unknown to me’ succulent.
I thought I’d do some research.
It appears after doing some research that this herbaceous plant is commonly known as ‘Mother of Millions’. Evidently ‘Mother of Millions’ which was originally a native of Madagascar has become a huge garden jumper and a real pest.
Mother of Millions forms colonies on roadsides and vacant land. Garden escape. Plants, particularly flowers are poisonous to stock.

I thought I’d include a couple of closeups after having found out this information. I really didn’t focus on the stems etc… but I’ll include them for reference.
I must say I feel disappointed after finding this out… From afar, the plants are extremely grey and ordinary looking… even messy, ugly… but up close, I think they are lovely… but only to look at!!
Best to know for sure!!
