Cheiridopsis

Its name comes from Greek and literally means "looking like a sleeve", referring to the peculiarity of this plant: in summer, when the plant goes into vegetative rest, its old and dry leaves create a protective sleeve that wraps around the new foliage to protect it from the hot sun rays! These are small succulents that never reach a large size, but they rather tend to grow horizontally, creating very striking thick green covers. The leaves, which are generally triangular in section and very fleshy, are born in pairs, and in the middle of each pair pleasant daisy-like inflorescences with very bright colors bloom: an incredible and pleasant contrast between these colors and their small green bodies!
