Description: Tylecodon rubrovenosus (Cotyledon rubrovenosa) is a sparingly branched ascending, perennial, succulent shrub to 30-35 cm tall, with solitary main stem, the short, thick branches are covered with phyllopodia (Expanded and hardened tubercle-like leaf-bases) which later disappear with the peeling bark.
Derivation of specific name: The specific epithet “rubrovenosus” comes from the Latin 'ruber, rubra, rubrum', meaning red; and from the Latin 'Venosus', meaning veined; for the reddish striations on the leaves.
Stems: Branches grey-green, about 2 cm in diameter (to 4 cm across at the base), occasionally becoming thicker upwards, with short irregularly shaped phyllopodia to 1 mm tall but later replaced by a peeling, grey-brown.
Leaves: Crowded at branches tips, linear to linear-lanceolate, (10-)25-40(-80) mm long, 2-4(-6) mm wide, ascending, curved inwards, terete, slightly cuneate, glandular-hairy to glabrous, upper (dorsal) face often slightly grooved, lower (ventral) face convex, acute, glandular-pubescent to glabrescent when young and becoming glabrous later (but the plants west of the coastal mountains tend to remain glandular-tomentose), greyish-green, often with conspicuous reddish striations.
Inflorescences: The inflorescences are spreading thyrses up to 20(-37) cm tall with 20 or more nodding yellowish-green flowers. The peduncle is 60-120 mm long, pale yellow, with 3-7 straight monochasia (branches), but which usually zig-zag when young, each with 4-9 flowers. Pedicels 3-6 mm long. All the parts of the inflorescence are glandular-pubescent.
Flowers: Pendulous. Calyx 4-6 mm long, glandular-tomentose, yellowish green. Sepals 6-7 mm long lanceolate-triangular, the apex acute to obtuse. Corolla yellowish green, tubular, 7-15 mm long, yellowish-green, glandular-pubescent, lobes spreading to recurved. Tube cylindrical to funnel-shaped, 7-9 mm long, glabrous inside except for few hairs where filaments are fused to tube. Corolla lobes 5-7 mm long, draw back. Anthers 1,5-1,8 mm long. Squamae oblong to square, 0,8-1,2 long, 0,5-1 mm wide, fleshy, yellowish orange.
Blooming season: This specie flowers in spring and early summer. September, October (November).
