There is a neatness in the appearance of this plant, which joined to the singular form of its foliage, varying also from the general hue, entitles it to a place in the green-house.
Mr. Masson discovered it at the Cape, and introduced it here in 1774. Ait. Kew.
It flowers from May to August, grows freely, and is usually propagated by cuttings.
