Noelene Tomlinson - CSSA Member - Adromischus
Adromischus is a genus of at least 28 species of small clumping leaf succulents from South Africa and Namibia. Prior to revision of the genus by Hellmut Tölken (who lives in Adelaide) a larger number of species were recognized. The genus has been divided into five sections according to their flowers. This genus was named in 1852 by Charles Antoine Lemaire.
