Historically this succulent was used as a charm in times of war, as it is believed to make warriors fearless. Today it is cultivated by traditional healers as it is believed to ward off evil spirits.
Organically grown and indigenous.

Haworthiopsis coarctata can grow quite tall on a long stem with rosettes of succulent leaves, that are covered with white ‘warts’. Leaves are dark green but can turn an attractive purple/red if grown in full sun. New plants that form at the base can be propagated and gifted to a loved one. This succulent is a wonderful plant to attract wildlife to your garden. She is pollinated by bees and wasps, and is enjoyed by grasshoppers, crickets, tortoises and porcupines.
