Red Pagoda Overview

The Red Pagoda is a variable, branching perennial succulent. At first, it appears as pink tinged rosettes and, later, leaves become pagoda-shaped and turn red. The thick, spirally-arranged leaves are bordered with bright pink, red or sometimes orange. Each new rosette grows above an older rosette. New leaves are mostly green and small but increase in size and colour as they descend the plant’s stem. The plant is also called shark’s tooth due to the triangular serrated pads. White, star-shaped flowers are produced in autumn, making this a popular choice as a houseplant (in frost-prone areas) or in a cool or temparate greenhouse!
