There are apparently about 50 species. I've found suppliers of seed of 3 or 4 species. It is surprising that someone hasn't latched on to cultivating and selling them on a large scale, they are really interesting and have lots of lovely scented flowers. And don't need watering for half the year!

I've got seeds of Xerophyta hereroenseretinervis, and viscosa on the way. From what I can make out they come from the southern tip of Africa, and are dormant in cold dry winters, and grow in the summer when they receive a lot more rainfall.
