There are seven species in this genus. It belongs to the family Didiereaceae and is indigenous to Southern Africa. They aren’t large plants, typically, but some can grow to attain the size of large shrubs.

Some species in this genus are usually grown for decorative purposes due to their well-formed, tiny, glossy leaves. One can keep some of these plants for bonsai owing to their perennial nature and prolific branching. Also, the stems and branches are woody, allowing the plant parent to fuss over and keep them ordered. They are easy to maintain and attractive.  Besides the foliage, plants in this genus also produce flowers copiously in season among the plant’s branches.
