Plant Summary

Tylecodon paniculatus, commonly known as butter tree, is a succulent shrub with a thick, greenish stem and yellowish-green, papery bark. It loses its leaves and produces long, reddish-orange, tubular flowers in summer, which attract nectar-feeding birds such as sunbirds. The plant is poisonous to livestock but was traditionally used by people for sliding down smooth rock faces. It is a striking feature plant for sunny, dry courtyards and water-wise gardens. It can be grown from seed or cuttings in well-drained soil.
