It is found in a rather large area from South to Western South Africa, growing in a well drained soil, from sandstone to quartzite with some water and lots of sun. The caudex can grow to four and a half centimetre in diameter, six centimetres long an sometimes branched. The entire plant to eight or even 30 centimetres in height. The flowers are white over cream to yellow with red markings.
