stemless rosettes of dark green to maroonish tinge with light short linear spots all over them. Prominent moderate sized teeth along leaf margins. Plants always solitary and get quite large for being a spotted, stemless species... supposedly up to 6' in diameter in the wild (from South Africa). Supposed to a plant that likes shade, but seems to be grown in sun all the times I've seen it and looks fine. Flowers are salmon-colored, and are multibranched on long racemes in early fall. The flowers themselves are tubuelar, about 1" long and have a curious lantern-like swelling at the base of each tube.
