    This small branching shrub is native to Cape Province, South Africa and when mature can reach 1' tall and 2' wide. The unusual fleshy leaves have two or more teeth at the tips, and are covered with a fuzzy coat of fine hairs. The yellowish flower clusters are borne on short stalks in summer. It prefers some shade, and makes a nice container plant.
