Description

This succulent shrub is mainly grown for its striking silhouette. Pencil-thick branches are slower growing than the species and are pale pink to fiery salmon pink; fades closer to yellow in the summer and becomes redder in the winter. Small leaves are inconspicuous.

Plant care

Requires loose, porous, well-drained soils; does not tolerate soggy, poorly drained soils. Water regularly during first growing season, or until well established, careful not to overwater; once established, reduce frequency. Restrict watering in the winter as it is susceptible to root rot. Prune to remove wayward or damaged growth.
