These prehistoric looking succulents are compact, rosette-forming plants native to South Africa. Their common names “Shark’s Jaws” and “Tiger’s Jaw” reflect the way leaves resemble the shape of a predator’s jaws. Clumping prolifically, this small, shrubby perennial forms an ever-expanding carpet of rosettes made of grey-green, triangular leaves with soft teeth. Leaves may have sprinklings of tiny grey dots. In bloom, it produces beautiful bright golden flowers that have purplish-pink undersides.

An easy plant to care for, place in part shade to full sun, such as on a bright windowsill. Water only when soil becomes dry.
