Argyroderma is a genus consisting of over 50 species of succulents in the ice plant family from South Africa. These distinctive plants are among those known as "living stones", because their highly succulent, usually stem less, blue-green leaves occur at ground level and can resemble small stones. They form small clumps of a few or many paired, usually cylindrical to egg-shaped leaves that are cleft in the centre. Each stem bears just 2 leaves per season but may produce offsets over the years. In some species the old leaves persist and form a short column on which new leaves develop. Solitary daisy-like flowers, usually white, yellow, or purple, appear in the cleft.
Solitary plants with variable leaves and magenta flowers.
