ISI 2002-15. Cotyledon tomentosa Harv. ssp. tomentosa

For good measure we offer this subspecies as well. However, this is not the typical clone of what is usually sold as “C. ladismithiensis”. This clone was obtained from Altman’s Specialty Plants and has larger than normal leaves and very attractive, urceolate, red-orange flowers. Rooted cuts of HBG 87298. $4.50.
