This is such a useful succulent. The linear foliage gives the garden a shot of blue all year long. The texture & color combine well with many plants. Try it with Asclepias currassavica ‘Silky Gold’ for a blue & yellow garden or combine with lime green Crassula lycopodiodes for a cool-color scheme. Grows to about 1’ high & about 3’ wide. Clip to keep compact. The flowers are inconspicuous, but S. madraliscae makes an excellent foliage plant. It can be grown as a trailing plant in a container.

Its a daisy. Very unorthodox daisy with stunning chalky blue succulent leaves- very much like a large Ice Plant. Bold seasonal container plant for full sun and well drained soil. Occasional white daisy-like flowers. To 6" tall and trailing. Let the soil dry between watering. Great contrast plant with Echeverias, Agaves. Protect from frost. Place in a sunny window in winter and keep slightly dry. Best in a cactus friendly soil.
