Cotyledon ladismithiensis variagata

Cotyledon tomentosa ladismithiensis variegata forms a small shrublet to 6" in height. Several "teeth" at the apex of each fleshy, fuzzy leaf give the appearance of "bear claws". Leaves are striated with yellow, and some leaves are entirely yellow, giving the plant a very colorful appearance. Cotyledon tomentosa ladismithiensis variegata form dense, low-growing mats and clusters of yellowish-orange bell-shaped flowers in late spring. They like porous soil with adequate drainage and bright light for best form with ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Red borders vary depending on time of year and sun exposure. Protect from frost.  The following information is courtesy of United States Botanic Garden.   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 nowhere 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..
