The genus Juttandinteria occurs in southern Namibia into the northern part of the Richersveld in the Western Cape Province of South Africa. The plants form small clumps or shrubs of bluish-green, short, fleshy fused leaves, the margins and keels of which can be toothed. In terms of texture, they are often textured or waxy. The strongly scented, diurnal flowers are mostly white and solitary, appearing at the ends of the braches. The plants often become large and can be pruned. Juttadinteria are propagated from seed. Steven Hammer says they smell like rhubarb.
