Cotyledon

 

The species in the genus Cotyledon range from South Africa to Arabia. Many of the species that used to be included have been moved to the genus tylecodon. The remaining species have a very varied appearance, are generally small succulent shrubs.

They can be used in landscaping in climates that are mostly frostless, and are interesting plants in raised beds or containers.

Most Cotyledon are easily grown from cuttings.
