Narrow, spiny with soft, rubbery spines, deeply channeled, discolor leaves that are green on top and deep purple below. It has a tall scape with peach colored flowers. As far as we know this is the first of this nothogerera to be produced. The name comes from the fact that the spines are soft despite their appearance.
