_Stone plants, also known as stone-mimicry plants, a unique group of South Africa deserts plants which closely resemble the pebbles among which they grow.
Fenestraria or "Baby Toes" are very unusual plants from the deserts of South Africa. These plants belong to large family of Aizoaceae, which includes plants known as "Mimicry" plants for their ability to camouflage with their environment. "Baby Toes" have finger-like leaves in upright clusters. Each "finger" has a translucent "window" at the tip, and it is through this window that the harsh African sunlight is filtered to enable photosynthesis. In habitat, often only these "windows" are visible above the quartz sand. Fenestraria rhodalophylla has large silky white flowers from fall until early spring. white flowers, mimicry plant, babi toe, unusu plant

Lithops aucampiae [Family: Aizoaceae] -- Lithops are extremely succulent plants originating from the semi-deserts of southern Africa. Their plant body rests under ground, while on top they have transparent windows to let sunlight in for photosynthesis. A camouflage pattern on the windows lets them appear more or less like a pair of pebblestones, so hungry animals may hardly find them.
This is gorgeous...and heat and drought resistant (which seems really important this summer.)
