H. scabra is dark green species with scabrid, tubercled leaf surfaces. It is slowly growing species, some forms are offsetting, others remains solitary. It is very variable in size. (from 30 mm to 150 mm). The form of the plants varies from having the leaves distinctly tiered, in either 3 or 5 vertical tiers, and either incurved or suberect and spreading.

Distribution map

It grows from Ladismith in the West up to Baviaanskloof in the East. Near Witterdrift, which is few km from coast line, plants are almost without tubercles (this form was described as H. plettens). From area around Port Alfred´s Pass was described new variety var. johanii by Breuer and Hayashi. This variety has longer leaves and it is offsetting. Very attractive form is from Kraaldoorn, E of Calitzdorp, where plants do have white opaque tubercles.

H. scabra is quite slow growing species, so in cultivation you have to be patient. Propagation by seed or offsetts. It also needs more shady condition to grow.
