Distribution: Africa: South Africa: Eastern Cape:


Haworthia coarctata is found over an area in the Eastern Cape stretching from west of the Fish River to about Port Elizabeth.

The tubercles on the leaves are usually less, and smaller than on the very closely related Haworthia reinwardtii.

The two species are often difficult to tell apart and can also perhaps be regarded as a single species.

The plants can form large clumbs in habitat.

A number of forms, varieties or subspecies are recognized mentioned here as ssp. These are inluding but mot limited to Haworthia coarctata ssp adelaidensis, Haworthia coarctata ssp greenii, Haworthia coarctata ssp tenuis.

More information and pictures are available on the website of Jakub Jilemnicky at Haworthia coartata.
