Otjihipa Rock-Sage Overview

Aeollanthus haumannii is an aromatic, branched succulent with sticky, green leaves, bearing whitish mauve, 2-lipped flowers in autumn, only known from a solitary mountain in Kaokoveld, northern Namibia, growing on a sheer, south-facing cliff. Easily grown from cuttings or seed and best for gardens with a summer-dry climate.
