The name ‘Candelilla’ means ‘little candle’ in Spanish. The stems of the candelilla are boiled and a high quality wax is extracted to make candles, soap, polish, and ointments. This succulent landscape plant has silvery-grey leafless stems that stand upright, clumping and spreading by rhizomes.
Tiny white and pink flowers gather at the tops of the stems during the late spring, summer, and early fall. In the landscape, candelilla offers a unique texture in contrast to other water-wise plants with wider leaves, such as globe mallow or Arizona yellow bells. It also makes a nice accent in pots, as long as it is given ample drainage and a fast-draining soil.
