  1. Halo Frans,

    I have just returned from a trip from Calitzdorp, Beaufort West, up the Molteno pass then right on a dirtroad to Frazerburg, Sutherland, then a dirtroad over the Ouberg pass back to Sutherland the a nother dirtroad to Merweville via the Rooibergpss and back to Calitzdorp where I saw numerous of these crassulas.
