Cheiridopsis denticulata

Common names: Lobster Claws

Flowers: cream to pale yellow (but also yellow, orange or white).

Blooming season: Late winter. The flowers open during the afternoon and are pollinated by bees.

Cultivation and Propagation: The Cheiridopsis denticulata is a "winter" grower which is most active from late winter until later spring and heading for summer dormancy, but in favorable growing conditions it keeps going over the summer too and doesn't need particular care.

Watering: Water minimally in summer, only when the plant starts shriveling or spray them with a fine mist from time to time, water more abundantly when they are growing in the autumn and spring.

Light: It needs a bright sunny or light shade exposure in winter but keep cool and shaded in summer.
Hardiness: It prefers a very bright situation and will take a light frost (Hardy to -5°C) if it is in dry soil. USDA zones 9A – 11.
