Cheiridopsis Genus Image

There are a hundred species in this genus and all of them are perennial succulents. Also, they are all flowering. The plants have unique appearances which some may consider bizarre. These species are native to southern Africa, particularly the Republic of South Africa and Namibia. The succulent is small but with a tendency to form clusters. The leaves are succulent, sometimes thick like little green fingers but a few species have flat ones. The surface of these leaves is usually velvety.

Flowers in this genus are mostly yellow but some species may produce red or purple petals. They look like daisies and they bloom in summer and open during the day. One of the most interesting facts about this genus is the diversity of leaf shapes in a single plant. Leaves grow opposite each other and they are triangular in section. However, each pair of leaves is different from every other one. They have different forms, closeness, and sizes.
