Forzzaea leopoldo-horstii SEL1992-0080
A species formerly in the genus Cryptanthus that could easily be taken as an Orthophytum or perhaps even a Dyckia in its foliar aspect. Native to Diamantina, Minas Gerais, Brazil where it grows an arid existence. The leaves are stiff, succulent, and straight, about a half inch wide at the base and tapering to a point, bearing small, but stiff marginal spines. The color is silvery due to a heavy coat of trichomes. Flowers are white. Our clone of this plant originated with Prof. Dr. Werner Rauh and also carries the Selby accession number of SEL 1992-0080.
