H. cooperi var. doldii is a small, clump forming species, rosettes are 3-4 cm in diameter, leaves dark green, when exposed to the sun they turn reddish. Leave tips are translucent and keel and margins with small teeths. In nature it grows on flat rocks, where it forms small clumps. 

H. cooperi var. doldii is from Tyolomnqua river, W of East London. It has been discovered recently, due to the new bridge over the river, which made this area accessible to botanical exploration. It was discovered by Tony Dold from Grahamstown.
