This place we denominate campos rupéstres or field with rocks. Here we have plenty of rocks, and Araucaria ( A majetic native pine tree) forest. In winters we do have many frosts and temperatures below zero centigrades. Let´s get a stroll in the wilderness...Come with me, be my guest:

This is a clump of the red form. In nature these plants tend to form these nest looking clumps. The plant has a very pretty color, hasn´t it?

Those are only ones. There was no one left by the cattle (sheep). I took this and will try to get the offspring back. The land owners are friends of mine and are getting to know about these plants.
