Cotyledon orbiculata

Plant Properties: 

  • Commonly known as Pigs Ear. The name was given because of the oval shape of the leaves. 
  • It is a fast growing succulent shrub growing to a height of 60-90  cm . The leaves are grey-green with a red border.
  • The flower stem grows out of a cluster of leaves and the flowers are orange-red tubular flowers which hang in a drooping fashion.
  • It is an ideal plant for a rockery in a sunny position. 
  • The fleshy part of the leaf is an extremely effective treatment for warts and hard corns. Cut the leaf and apply the open side to the corn/wart directly – keep in place with a plaster and replace with a fresh leaf daily. It will soften and remove the corn/wart within a couple of days to a week.
  • The warmed leaf pulp can also be used as a poultice for boils or inflammation.
