The perfect combination of succulent and wildflower, this shrub is oddly beautiful and out of the ordinary.
Native to Africa, this succulent shrub grows up to 18 inches (45 cm), and when planted in outdoor gardens, it spreads easily to the point it can become invasive.
It has thick leaves resembling small pickle-like cucumbers, allowing easy identification. Leaves grow on short stems and appear shiny due to water reserves along their surface. Its entire body is covered in hard and short white hairs that get confused with spikes but don’t sting.
It blooms in spring and summer and bears white, yellow, and white and yellow flowers with many petals that resemble wild daisies. It is easy to care for and low maintenance. It attracts pollinators like butterflies.
