Yellow - Greenish-Yellow
Cotyledon rubrovenosa, Moritz Kurt Dinter, 1932
This member of the
Crassulaceae family was given this name by Hellmut R.
Toelken in 1978. It is found in Namibia and South Africa,
growing in a well drained soil with little to some water and lots of
sun. The stems can grow to 3,5 centimetres and reach a length of 25
centimetres. The flowers are bright yellow to greenish yellow.
The genera name is an anagram of
Cotyledon; a closely-related genus. The species name from
Latin rubrum, meaning 'red', and from the Latin venosus,
meaning 'veined' for the reddish striations on the leaves.
