The leaves look like stones with various shades of green, opaque creamy yellow-green or lime green with numerous tiny darker green blotches. It is a fast clumper that can produce readily large mound with dozen of heads. The flowers are yellow. Stone Plant is native to South Africa, grown worldwide.
