large variety of distinctive forms and sizes. Can be used in landscaping in
climates that are mostly frostless. Interesting plants in raised beds or
in the genus Cotyledon range from South Africa to Arabia. Many of the species
that used to be included have been moved to the genus Tylecodon. This group
includes a large variety of distinctive forms and sizes. They can be used in
landscaping in climates that are mostly frostless and are interesting plants in
raised beds or containers. The Cotyledon species plants differ a lot in the
shape and color of the leaves. These are succulent shrubs or semi-shrubs with
smooth, fleshy leaves. Cotyledons can be divided into two groups. One group
consists of evergreen plants with a summer growing period. The other group is
made up of deciduous plants. The second group grows during our winter and sheds
its leaves during our summer. The remaining species have a very varied
appearance, are generally small succulent shrubs. The long-lasting flowers are
all roughly the same shape in the different Cotyledon species. The flowers form
tubular cups with spreading free lobes. Hardiness zones 8-10, (-10°C/15°F,
4°C/40°F). Cotyledons should be kept in a sunny position. Follow general
succulent watering procedures. Be careful of over-watering when Cotyledons are
deciduous. Use a well-drained soil mix.
seed in pots or trays of moist peat/sand mix compost and cover with a very fine
sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place and
keep at a constant temperature of between 20-25ºC (68-77ºF). After sowing, do
not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost
moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 30-180 days, it can
take longer, don’t give up.
