Description

Known by a variety of common names such as “Flapjack” or “Paddle Leaf,” this thick paddle-leaf succulent grows green in summer with burgundy edges which become highly colored with cooler temperatures below 60ºF and high light. Often used in clusters in a bulb pan or planter, or as a single specimen.  Growth can be as much as 2′ wide and tall. A tall bloom spike is produced with small yellow flowers.  If possible, water and fertilize plants from underneath, avoiding wetting the leaves.  Water in dry conditions. In winter, water every 6 days and in summer every 3 days.
