An unusual looking plant, native to South Africa, this Cotyledon has the common names “Paddle Plant” and “Green Pig’s Ear” due to the paddle or ear shape of its leaves, which are green but stained with a red-wine line around the edges. An evergreen succulent shrub growing up to a metre tall and wide, its long stems arise from the centre holding clusters of coral-red, bell shaped flowers.

Thriving both in gardens and indoors, Cotyledons need a lot of sun and infrequent, minimal watering. A free-draining gritty soil mix and low humidity will also bring out the best in the Paddle Plant.

Perfect for beds and borders, patios and containers, and rock gardens.
