For now there are 48 species which are distributed throughout the Western Hemisphere. However, the majority of them can be found in southern Mexico where they form dense, spectacular forests. The genus name is related to some species ability to produce cephallium or psedocephallium upon reaching adulthood. This unique growth doesn’t match that of the rest of the plant. ...

This little-known genus of succulent perennials contains 60 species of what is commonly called iceplant. It is a coastal species found along the southern tip of Africa both east and west of the Cape of Good Hope. The plants are ground hugging dense mats of thick leaves that dwell in the sandy dune lands and rocky outcrops found in the maritime climate areas.

Cephalophyllum species are creeping plants that produce thick blue green leaves with a curiously half rounded tips. Leaves...
