This blog is dedicated to plants from desert regions around the world as well as plants that have adapted to withstand arid conditions, but do not occur in real deserts. Many of the plants are found in arid semi-desert regions. There will be a greater emphasis on succulent plants, but others will also be included. This blog deals with desert plants of the Americas, Africa, Arabia and others. We are situated in South Africa and South African plants are likely to feature more dominantly. The pictures taken are from our private botanical desert garden at Leopoort near Oudtshoorn, from plants in nature, as well as other collections.

Haworthia zenigata is an extremely rare small succulent plant found in fynbos habitat at only a few localities north of the Outeniqua mountains.

The plants are related to Haworthia minima and Haworthia kingiana of the coastal areas.

Seed production in nature is almost non-existent and the plants are not available in cultivation yet.
