This succulent plant produces clumps of short rosettes up to 3 inches wide with dark thin and triangular blackish leaves. These leaves first emerge greenish but darken to a deep lavender brown and with age the lower leaves widen out to as much as 1 inch wide at the base. In late fall to early winter appear the dark red flowers on short stalks. Plant in full sun (best color) or light shade in a well drained soil with occasional irrigation in spring and summer months. Hardy to 25 degrees F. Great container plant. Very low water requirements. Can tolerate indoor conditions.
