The yellow flowers, are five-pointed, on top of a tall inflorescence. Blooming from July - August. The leaves are pointed, succulent, glaucous, and blue.

The leaves are cooked and eaten.
Surface sow seeds in spring in well-drained soil in a sunny position in a greenhouse. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle. If sufficient growth is made, it is possible to plant them out during the summer, otherwise keep them in a cold-frame or greenhouse for their first winter and plant them out in early summer of the following year.
Succeeds in most soils but prefers a fertile well-drained soil in a sunny position. Established plants are very drought tolerant. They grow well in dry soils and can be grown on a wall. This species is not hardy in the colder areas of Britain, it tolerates temperatures down to between -5 and -10°C, and dislikes the winter wet.
