A particularly beautiful succulent with fantastic foliage all year round. The big softly-hairy grey-green leaves pair well with all sorts of other contrasting foliage types, and the large upright panicles of many bell-shaped apricot-red flowers are a bonus in spring and summer. Each flower has intricate veining inside it, which adds to the appeal, particularly if sited on a bank or in a large tub, where the bells can be views from below as well. Can be grown easily in a warm sheltered spot in gardens that only get mild frosts, but is best kept in a large pot or warm conservatory in very cold areas. Mine have been known to grow to 1m x 1m, but will generally be around 70-80cm at flowering.
