Pedilanthus bracteatus (Tall Slipper Plant)

Pedilanthus bracteatus
Tall Slipper Plant

Pedilanthus bracteatus is a great succulent that can thrive in a variety of exposures. This is a thicker, more substantial cousin of P. macrocarpus, and is also more tolerant of full sun and frost. It will stay in leaf through the warm season, producing more leaves in shady exposures. This is also a great bloomer. You can expect to have the red-orange flower bracts grace your plants from early summer through the fall. Great choice for containers or in the ground.
