Family: Aizoaceae

Grows into small clumps of thick open green leaves with small tubercles at margins. Produces orange flowers in spring.

Found growing on shale slopes in the Northern Cape of South Africa

These plants are from a winter rainfall area and therefore do well outdoors in our Mediterranean climate if grown in a highly inorganic well draining media such as pumice, and exposed to full sun for at least part of the day. Tends to be rot prone if grown in organic material. These plants can be used in rock gardens or landscapes if the soil is mounted and well draining (amending with 75% lava sand, or high-quality decomposed granite, can accomplish this). Reduce watering in summer.
