This genus belongs to the family Aizoaceae. These plants are natives of the semi-arid habitats of the Western Cape in South Africa. Species in this genus were initially grouped under the genus Lampranthus but were later separated. There are about 25 species in this genus. The genus is a trailing perennial shrublet that has reddish stems. It has three angled leaves, which are sickle-shaped and grey-green.

Their leaves may acquire a tinge of red under intense sunlight. Leaf margins usually have teeth in some of the species. The plant does well under direct sunlight and is generally easy to manage.
