This forest jewel with deep green and red leaves grows in the deep shade of the coastal forest growing the sandstone cliffs. The broadly elliptic succulent leaves are dark glossy green on the top, while the under surface is maroon to carmine giving it a striking appearance. Some forms have attractive white spots along the veins on the upper surface of the leaf.

A very similar plant is C. multicava, a popular garden plant much used as a ground cover.
