The variegated form of this succulent has typical yellow zones in the exact points where the chlorophyll is absent: each plant will have different yellow zones, therefore each exemplar will be absolutely unique and for this reason sought after by the collectors. It is a succulent shrub-like plant, formed by many small rosettes that grow at the apex of thin stems. It has small and obovate leaves, ranging from green-yellowish to dark green. The entire epidermis is covered with a soft down that protects the plant and gives it an opaque look, almost silvery in the sun. The blooming takes place in summer, at the apex of long stems, small but graceful yellow star-shaped flowers bloom.
