Like other species of Glottiphyllum, C. cruciatum comes from South Africa and has bright yellow flowers. It stands out for its red-tipped leaves, and it makes a nice splash of color in winter. It is great to see it looking good after our bout of cold in December, when it dropped to the mid-twenties F (-4 C).
