A striking blue-gray succulent from South Africa. Pencil-like, slightly curved leaves point upward and form a dense mat. Creates a very attractive groundcover or textural element in mixed succulent containers. Small white flowers appear in summer. Easy care and drought tolerant but will tolerate regular irrigation. A frost-tender evergreen.
