This member of the Euphorbiaceae family was given this name by Pierre Edmond Boissier in 1860. It is found in Botswana, Lesotho and South Africa, growing in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The centre can grow to 18 centimetres in diameter, forming a 30 centimetre high and even up to 130 centimetre wide cushion, which will get yellow flowers.
