Haworthia is a large genus of small succulent plants endemic to Southern Africa (Mozambique, Namibia, Lesotho, Swaziland, South Africa). Like the Aloes, they are members of the subfamily Asphodeloideae and they generally resemble miniature aloes, except in their flowers, which are distinctive in appearance. Horticulturally they are popular garden and container plants (from Wiki). This is an important taxonomic revision of the genus Haworthia that was named after Adrian H. Haworth who was an English entomologist, botanist and crustacean expert. This very rare offering is finely bound in attractive dark green morocco that is housed in a custom slipcase.
