Astroloba spiralis Overview

Astroloba spiralis is a herbaceous, succulent perennial that originates from the Cape Province of South Africa. Foliage is fleshy, glossy and extremely regular in appearance, arranged in spirals on stems. The leaves are smooth and sharply triangular in shape, this species produces multiple stems in clusters. Older specimens with longer stems tend to fall and grow in a sprawling manner rather than an erect habit as in younger, smaller plants. They are adapted to rocky, dry environments and enjoy full sun. Flowers are arranged in clusters on slim flowering stalks and are coloured green-white to yellow.
