This is a really nice South-African species. It has thick fleshy roots, annual stems with large leaves that are thick and fleshy. The flowers are produced freely in clusters with only one or two flowers open at any one time which gives it a long flowering period. The stems die back to the rootstock in winter. It can be kept in dry conditions at a temperature of 5 degrees. When the new growth starts, watering can commence again. The colour of the flower can vary.
