Out of stock
Lovely little fat-leaved succulent that will trail attractively over the edge of a planter - try it in a hanging pot where it can really show off. Likes sunshine; doesn't mind if you forget to water occasionally; copes with poor soils, sea spray, and breezes - all around an easy starter plant.

Cotyledon pendens - cliff Cotyledon

APPEARANCE: Small trailing succulent with fat round green leaves, each tipped with light red edges depending on the season and environment. There are 2 types of Cotyledon pendens, evergreen that grows during summer and deciduous that grows during winter and loses its leaves during summer. During spring and summer curled bell-shaped orangey-red flowers appear on the tips of mature and happy plants' stems. Rare in the wild in its native home of the sea cliffs of South Africa.
USE IN: Great for rockeries, pots and indoors in bright light. Hardy and very drought tolerant once established. Keep frost free.
LOCATION: Plant in free-draining gritty soil in bright sunlight. Very happy in rocky sandy soils and exposed locations.
CARE: Water sparingly when the soil is dry to touch, and reduce watering in the winter when temperatures drop. Feed in the growing seasons with slow release food for container plants.
HEIGHT & WIDTH:  5cm H x up to 60 cm L
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants with a healthy young root system and will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. Your plants may be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on.
