This member of the
Crassulaceae family was given this name by
John Jacob Lavranos in 2001. It is found
in two small areas in western South Africa, growing in grit or
another well drained soil with
some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to two
centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to seven centimetres in
height. That said, it can be spoiled in culture, and reach five
centimetres in diameter and 25 centimetres in height. The
flowers are cream to pale pink.
The genera name is an anagram of
Cotyledon; a closely-related genus. The species name after Frans K. A. Noltee, a Dutch succulent plant
hobbyist and nurseryman.
This is a winter-grower, but
it flowers during the summer.
