GROW YOUR INDIGENOUS SOUTH AFRICAN GARDEN
Mesembryanthemum varians was previously known as Sceletium varians. It is known to have few medicinal properties — unlike Mesembryathemum tortuosum (previously Sceletium tortuosum). It makes up for it by showcasing its much bigger flowers in spring.
Mesembryanthemum varians is a low-growing, scrambling and short-lived perennial. The branches may become woody and thick with age. The succulent leaves are narrow and flat, not imbricate and to 20 mm long. The tips of the leaves are recurved, with bladder cells appearing as small dots.
