Adromischus

 

Adromischus is a South African genus, of small clumping species. Several of these species are quite popular and can br found pretty easily in the cactus and succulent section of most nurseries and garden centers.

Most species of Adromischus are propagated easily by leaf cuttings, but seeds are also used.

Coming from the south of Africa, most species take a small amount of frost for a few hours. On the other hand, they can be tricky to keep alive in Phoenix when the temperature stay above 100F (38C) for extended periods of time.
