(Haworthia)

Instead of a rounded rosette of pointy leaves, this haworthia's leaves are fleshy, leathery and flat topped, looking like cut-off fingers. This front-tender, succulent perennial is native to southwestern South Africa in the Western Cape province. It develops into a clump containing small, coarse rosettes with a fleshy, fibrous root system. The roots are regarded as contractile, as they pull the plant downward into the soil during the heat of summer to shield it from desiccation and intense sunlight.

(Haworthia)

The name Haworthia turgida rightly suggests turgid little clumps of succulent Haworthia plantlets. This free-growing species forms a tight, clustered clump of rosettes that resemble those of hens-and-chicks (Sempervivum spp.). Each rosette has short, plump, leathery but fleshy leaves that retain moisture, allowing it to survive in gritty, dry soils and high heat. This frost-tender, succulent perennial is native to southern South Africa.

(False Yucca)

This small genus of desert plants contains just 3 species, which are native to the arid regions of Texas and northern Mexico. They are found in a wide range of soil types, and may grow in clay provided the ground is sufficiently sloped to drain water away quickly. This succulent plant produces tight, stemless clumps of narrow foliage that may be stiff and upright or softer and curved depending on the species. It retains its attractive appearance throughout both summer and winter seasons.

(Redflower False Yucca)

This is a tough succulent perennial that blooms over an incredibly long season once temperatures rise in the southwestern summers. It is native to the arid lands of Texas and Mexico, growing in well-drained soils with both grasses and agaves. It is strong enough to endure reflected pavement heat in the medians of low desert highways if provided irrigation. Narrow leaves give it a fine texture. Its neat clumps slowly spreading slowly if adequate water is provided.

(Hesperoyucca)

This is a new genus created to contain just three species. They are all native to the American Southwest and northwestern Mexico. They are most prevalent in hot, dry, mountainous regions of the west where they have been used by Native Americans for soap, food and fiber.

This group is easily identified by its distinctive rosette form composed of many narrow, stiff leaves. These are hard and blue green, and typically tipped with a single wickedly sharp tip. These are stemless and ground hugging.

(Heurnia)

This genus of carrion flowers contains about 60 to 70 species of tender succulent plants. They are primarily native to the deserts of Africa, more specifically to South Africa, Ethiopia and the Arabian peninsula. They tend to prefer very fast draining low fertility soils in somewhat protected locations of rocky hillsides which rarely retain much moisture but boulders offer protection from direct afternoon exposure.
