Tongue Plant, Glottiphyllum longum, is a unique and eye-catching succulent that is perfect for adding texture to any garden. Native to South Africa, this perennial plant grows to around 10cm in height and forms clumps of rosettes that make it an excellent groundcover option. The thick, bright green leaves are long and finger-like, with a twisted or wavy appearance. They grow in two opposite arrays and are often flat on the ground. The plant also produces cheerful yellow daisy-like flowers that last for a long time and woody seed pods that are a beautiful brown color.

Tongue Plant is a drought-tolerant plant that thrives in waterwise gardens. It has moderate water needs and should not be overwatered. Position it in full sun to part shade or light shade for optimal growth. This unique succulent is also known as Tongue-leaf Plant, Gumby Plant, and Ostrich Food. Add some texture and interest to your garden with Tongue Plant.
