Large leafy shrub or small tree from South Africa with round, fleshy, usually red-edged leaves and white or pinkish flowers. Easy to propagate from leaves or cuttings. The succulent leaves are pocked with epidermal hydathodes almost exclusively on the upper surface and may be varying degrees of glaucous depending on the light. Leaves may persist for a long time on old plants but leaf loss in times of drought can lead to exposed stems. In cultivation this plant is susceptible to scale, which may be well camouflaged by the powder on the leaves.
