Cotyledon tomentosa ladismithiensis

Cotyledon tomentosa ssp. ladismithiensis Cotyledon tomentosa ssp. ladismithiensis is a rare native of the Cape Province of South Africa. This area falls within the Cape Floristic Region, which is home to the greatest non-tropical concentration of plant species in the world. Almost 70% of plant species in the Cape Floristic Region, including Cotyledon tomentosa ssp. ladismithiensis, are endemic, meaning that they grow no where else in the world. In an effort to conserve the threatened flora of the Cape Province, the South African government has launched a massive program to remove invasive plants in order to encourage the regeneration of native vegetation.

Cotyledon ladismithiensis, native to South Africa, forms a small shrublet to 6" in height. Several "teeth" at the apex of each fleshy, fuzzy leaf give the appearance of "bearclaws". Clusters of yellowish-orange bell-shaped flowers in late spring. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright light for best form with ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.
