Name not certain. A clump-forming succulent with masses of long thin succulent leaves, topped by long-stalked spikes of small (1 cm.) flowers in autumn. The variety we have has salmon orange petals and yellow stamens which have hairy filaments. (They are also sweetly scented, a point not mentioned by the books.) Possibly hardy in well-drained dry sunny spot outdoors in mild and coastal gardens. Has survived in an unheated polytunnel during the 'freeze' of 2010.
