Native to South Africa, this fun trailing succulent produces plump leaves shaped like little pickles! The foliage is covered with fine white hairs that are soft to the touch. Also known as Mesembryanthemum echinatum and Drosanthemum pruinosum, a mature plant will produce small, daisy-like flowers. Potted plants can be grown outdoors in the summer and brought back inside when temperatures are expected to fall below 50°F (10°C). Can be grown outdoors year-round in frost-free climates, in a pot or in the ground.


Looks great grown in containers and hanging baskets. Makes a nice windowsill plant. May be displayed outdoors in warmer weather.
