Lithops A - J
In 1811, William John Burchell was on a botanical expedition in South Africa when he went to pick up an interesting stone and found it was a plant. The name comes from the Greek - lithos (stones) and ops (like); thus the common name - "Living Stones." A brief photo essay of the growth cycle of Lithops is presented here. An asterisk * indicates a name no longer accepted in Lithops - Flowering Stones, 2005, by Desmond & Naureen Cole. Please note that this list is now for reference only, as we are not currently selling any Lithops. Check out the home page for more information. The Plant name may provide a link to a photo.
