New! This is an unusual climbing succulent vine with gray cylindrical stems and thick, fleshy, silvery-green 1 to 2 inch wide round leaves. Tiny yellowish-green flowers appear in late winter to early spring. It makes a nice potted outdoor plant, a hanging basket, or an indoor house plant. In the ground, it can clamber over other plants, fences, or structures reaching 15 feet in height with the aid of slender forked tendrils. Best planted in full sun, but will tolerate some light shade. Plant in a well-draining succulent mix and water when soil becomes dry, keeping even drier in winter. This is an interesting, tough plant that tolerates neglect. Growing slowly at first, it grows faster once established. It is native to southwestern Madagascar, growing in subarid bushland forest and dunes. It is hardy to about 25F. USDA zones 9b - 11.
