The leaves are characteristically three-angled, sickle-shaped and grey-green, often tinged red in the drier season. This species is easily distinguished from the others as it is the only one with the leaf margins and keel prominently red-toothed.
This low-maintenance succulent spreads out forming a colourful mat and grows well on the rocky edge of flower beds where it cascades over the edge.
Easily cultivated from cuttings.
Plant in a sunny position.
Found growing among sandstone rocks in the winter-rainfall mountains of the far south-western corner of South Africa.
It attracts butterflies.
