The leaves are thick and fleshy, green to grey-green, with some varieties showing white flecks on the upper and lower stem surfaces. The margin of the leaf is serrated and has small white teeth. The flowers are produced in summer on a spike up to 35 inches (90 cm) tall, each flower being pendulous, with a yellow, tubular corolla up to 1.2 inches (3 cm) long.

The flowers are tubular to bell shaped and will open progressively from the base. The leaves will vary greatly between species in size, colour and prickles on the margins or surfaces.
