Also called paddle plant, dog tongue or desert cabbage, this showy white-frosted succulent is native to South Africa, primarily in dry, exposed, rocky areas. Each plant features a basal rosette of large, fleshy, leaves stacked like pancakes with leaf edges extended upward in order to minimize sun exposure to the leaf surfaces. With sufficient sun exposure the leaf margins turn a showy red.
