Perhaps the most beautiful endemic plant on the whole Azores,is very specialised and rare,grows in cliffs and coastal rocks in conditions of high humidity, high winds and much salt!Found it locally abundant at Mosteiros, growing in extremely exposed conditions amongst black basalt rocks and sand.
Is grown in some plant collections in the UK,quite difficult.This is my second posting of this species,I did put it on about 18 months ago before I realised you could add more than one photo so have included habitat shots and fruits etc now
