Cotyledon pendens is a hardy plant that requires minimal maintenance. Belonging to the Crassulaceae family, the Cotyledon pendens common name is Cliff cotyledon. It is a native to South Africa where these plants hang down from cliffs. This trailing plant grows close to the ground as a shrub. The multi-branched succulent reaches a maximum height of 2 feet, growing as cascading strings. The branches bear multiple tear-shaped leaves that appear as powdery grey-green with a reddish margin at the tip. Cotyledon pendens succulent flowers in mid-summer when red or orange-colored bell-shaped flowers fill the plant. The plant is not frost-hardy and grows at a fast pace. For the best growth, the winter-dormant plant needs full sunlight.

Flowering

Light

Nice plant

A little worse for ware due to stem cracking and leaf loss, but I cannot fault the packaging. This species just doesn’t seem to take jostling well. The base of the plant and roots are in good shape so I expect it’ll bounce back quickly.
