Tylecodon leucothrix

It is a shrubby succulent, slightly branched, which does not exceed 30 cm in height. It produces a thick and woody tuberous stem, partially underground, on the top of which lanceolate leaves up to 8 cm long grow, that are slightly concave, of a dark green color and covered with a whitish down that makes the plant soft to the touch. Precisely for this particular characteristic of its foliage this Tylecodon is often called "Bunny Ears", while the scientific name 'leucothrix' comes from the Greek words "leukos" - "white, shiny" and "thrix, trichos" - "hair". In summer, when the plant begins to lose its leaves, its beautiful tubular white or pink flowers appear.
