This shrubby succulent (ht 1 m) has felted, coppery-cinnamon foliage with bronze-grey undersides, and the curved, oval shape of the leaves gives rise to its common name of copper spoons. It forms a branched, bushy shape and may remain around 5o cm, especially if grown in a pot. Yellow flowers appear in winter. The plant needs a well-drained position in sun (for best leaf colour) or part-shade. It is frost tender. It can be grown in a container. It should not be overwatered, especially in winter. Feed in spring with a slow-acting fertilser. It can be propagated from stem or leaf cuttings.
