Othonna capensis ‘Ruby Necklace’ is a trailing succulent with multiple purple pink stems and long narrow bean-shaped leaves. The beans have beautiful vibrant colors of green, purple, or deep red. The more light they receives, the more red they become. The delicate shape and red colors of these leaves are similar to precious gem pendants on necklaces, giving it the name 'Ruby Necklace'. The plant displays little yellow daisy like flowers on a long reddish stalk all year round. These strings of beans are perfect for hanging baskets or in a rock garden.
