Succulent Grape

This succulent grape is grown for its large,  blue/green and somewhat velvet/fuzzy-textured foliage. In time this drought hardy plant will grow to 36-48 inches tall with a pachycaul stem used for water storage. Cyphostemma does best in full sun and will go deciduous during the winter months.  The grape-like fruit are toxic.  Photos by Laurel Woodley
