    Native to Madeira, the Canary Islands and North Africa, ‘Velours’ has striking, dark purple leaves, which contrast beautifully with its bright yellow flowers.

  • Garden care: Plants will need protection in winter so move them to a dry, frost-free spot. In summer, water sparingly as they are well adapted to dry conditions and will draw on water stored in their succulent leaves.
