Larryleachia are from South Africa and Namibia. Flowers are sessile, fleshy and very variable in colour. The flowers I have seen are reddish, purple or maroon, and glabrous. Larryleachia cactiforme is a small perennial stem succulent mostly solitary (or slowly clumping). Globular to elongate, green or light green or blue-green 5-30 cm high, 20-60 mm wide, unbranched or sparsely branched short-cylindric, and tessellate with roughly pentangular, flat or depressed tubercles closely set together; latex colorless. Leaves: Persistent, reduced to scales, in spirals or verticillate, sessile (and sunken), strongly adscending, 0.05-0.1 cm long. Roots: Fibrous. Flowers: Appear (usually) close to apex of stems in extra-axillary inflorescences 1 to 3 together on a tubercle apex, each about 6 to 10mm, in diameter, simple, sessile, fleshy, abaxially whitish cream, green, yellow to dull pinkish uniformly coloured or maculate with reddish, purple or maroon, adaxially white, cream, green or yellow, maculate, glabrous. Flowers open synchronously in summer.
