Lenophyllum is a small genus of succulent perennials that is closely related to sedum, graptopetalum, and echeveria (family Crassulaceae). In fact, lenophyllum is so closely related to these other genera that it was originally placed in the genus Sedum and has been crossed with other two genera to produce the intergeneric hybrids xLenoveria and xLenaptopetalum.

Gender: Lenophillum Family: Crassulaceae Habitat: Lowlands of California, New Mexico, Texas (USA) and Mexico Cultivation: In greenhouse cultivate in standard soil for cactus, in full light. From spring to late summer watering abundantly, reducing watering in autumn and keeping the soil slightly humid in winter. Curiosity: They are suitable for shrubbery borders and desert gardens [ ].

The principal aim is to help preserve plants of the Crassulaceae family now existing in private as well as in public collections – most important in a time when plant imports have become almost impossible. This aim is best achieved by distributing plants and seeds among as many people as possible, by exchanging information on cultivation, origin, taxonomy etc. as well as by offering help in.

Description. Lenophyllum reflexum is an hairless, succulent perennial, up to 12 inches (30 cm) tall. The leaves are opposite, mostly reflexed, up to inches ( cm) long and up to inches (3 cm) wide. It covers over taxa of all succulents except Cactaceae. The Crassulaceae (stonecrop family) volume presents the first complete treatment of the family for many decades. The family is a very diverse group, and plants range from tiny insignificant annual herbs to perennial shrubs and trees/5(3). Abstract— Dudleya (Crassulaceae) is a genus of succulent perennials endemic to western North America. Interspecific relationships within Dudleya have been difficult to discern due to a lack of synapomorphic characters for the genus or subgenera, Author: Joachim Thiede.
