Dorstenia horwoodi

Dorstenia horwoodi grow in Somalia in Nugaal Province, east of the village of Eyl, on the limestone plateau overlooking the Indian Ocean, 100–150 metres above sea level. Dorstenia horwoodii grow nested in rock cracks and very small holes on top of huge boulders, on the limestone plateau.  In habitat it grows to about 2” tall (more in cultivation). It produces a new flush of silvery green, remarkably nice, decorative crisped and crenulate leaves in spring turning to autumnal golden before they shed. The inflorescences are held on long straight erect spreading peduncles (flower stalks) twice as long as leaves. These are greenish, flat, disk-like in longitudinal section with a row of star-like appendages on the margin of the receptacle. The receptacle bears both the ovaries of the female flowers, and the anthers of the male flowers. Horwoodii remains strongly perennial.  Derivation of specific name: This species was collected by Frank (Francis) Horwood in Somalia.  Hence the species name.
