Orbea cooperi - 5 seeds
Orbea cooperi formerly described in the genus Stultitia, is a succulent, leafless perennial forming small clumps or mats. The stems of O. cooperi are very similar to those of Orbea Variegata or Orbea verrucosa, but the flowers are rather different. In O. cooperi one to three flowers arise from the sessile inflorescence near the base of the stems and the flower is usually not more than 3.5 cm across and flattish, with a deep reddish color and a lighter, slightly raised, cushion-like annulus, which forms the sides of a small corolla tube. This tube is short and only contains the base of the gynostegium. The outer corona lobes rise and spread to rest on its mouth. O. cooperi is closely related to Orbea tapscottii.
