Haworthia denticulifera ( Haworthia chloracantha var. denticulifera) Hartenbos Hills Mossel Bay

Although Haworthia denticulifera is realively easy to spot in the Gouritzriver area near Johnsons Post ( http://haworthia-everywhere.blogspot.com/2009/03/haworthia-chloracantha-variety.html ),it is a different matter at Hartenbos Hills.

At the latter locality the plants are smaller and seemingly slightly more buried into the ground. They are quite difficult to spot here and I might have missed them if it was not for the odd flower here and there. Clumps do occur here, but they also grow solitary. The effects of a recent devastating fire left the plants in rather poor condition.

Notably some plants are still flowering while others have shed all of their seed.
