Pig's Ears are an unusual perennial decorative succulent from the Crassulaceae family, which originated in South Africa. In its natural environment, it grows on rocky plains or in grassy areas with a lot of sunlight that allows it to develop properly. It is important to add that the succulent is frost-resistant, so it can be grown in colder climates.
Cotyledon orbiculata is easily identified by its fleshy, gray-green, egg-shaped leaves with red edges and a somewhat shaggy texture. An important feature of the leaves is that they contain natural protection against the sun, which is also called powdery.
The flowers are not as showy as the bell-like leaves, are orange, yellow, or red in color, bloom throughout the year, and are odorless. Grow on slender dark green stems up to 24 inches (60 cm) tall and often drooping.
