  • Description

  • Notes

These plants are one of the most useful succulents, due to their decorative effects and sculpturesque quality. The branched stems hold a wide rosetta of either light green or purple leaves. The flowers appear in long, clustered form. They need some shade in hotter areas. Prostrate forms are low-growing, and spreading.
The plant should be kept in full sun when near the coast, and under partial shade when inland or planted in pots or the ground. It is of a desert garden nature, and contrasts well with bushy plants.
