Cotyledon orbiculata var. spuria
(This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List)
A native of South Africa where it has a broad habitat across both summer and winter rainfall regimes. It has five variants based mostly on leaf shape; the stricta variant having a thick, chunky leaf as opposed to the usual fan-shaped form.
A low, fast growing shrub with mid green leaves, it is one of the ‘easy to grow’ succulents with the added bonus of being maintenance free. Flowering is on an extended stalk that is held well above the foliage. Flowers are a cluster of orange-red pendant bells though yellow forms are known. Flowering normally occurs in winter but can be mid-summer depending on the winter rainfall.
Suitable for rockeries, pots or general garden site, this plant prefers full sun to partial shade in a free draining soil.
