Description

With its undulating leaf tips, the "delicious," crinkled pale-green succulent treat known as key lime pie adds interest to any arrangement.

The flowers of Adromischus cristatus appear on long stems and are tubular and whitish with reddish markings. Excellent for a brightly lit atrium or windowsill as well as in rock gardens in temperate environments.
