The photos are a bit grainy, I'm afraid.

I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

Thanks Miriam.  I think it is. I have another C tetragona which has leaves closer together and much greener. A little shorter too. I have had that for over 10 years and it has never flowered.

The photo I sent was of a cutting I took from a different plant. I am always wary of my own identifications as you never know if there are other plants which exist that are similar to what you think you have in your hand.

Thanks again  :)
