Its name derives from Greek and literally means "tongue-shaped leaf", in reference to the fleshy and elongated foliage, similar to tongues. They are small succulents, with oblong and cylindrical leaves, which do not reach a considerable size, tending to develop horizontally like a carpet. They often have a drooping habit, which is why they can perfectly decorate rooms in hanging baskets, from which a splendid green cascade will descend! It becomes even more ornamental in winter, when large yellow flowers bloom, giving an extra lively touch. Since they are very resistant to the most extreme conditions, especially to sun and heat, they are perfect for rock gardens, flower beds and planters, but also for different styles of interiors.
