Sometimes fabulous prizes come in small packages. This is particularly true with Anacampseros rufescens 'Sand Rose', a petite purple people charmer that is ideal in a decorative windowsill pot or as a dish garden accent. But that's not all! In a border or terraced planter, over time, the rosettes will spread to form a green-purple mat, like a miniature groundcover. White hairs, a common Anacampseros trait, add interest. While it should do well in filtered light, more direct light will have its olive-green leaves turning purple to reddish-brown. And then there's the flowers! Fetching blooms that will win hearts with their pink to pinkish-purple petals. Single flowers are pink to rose-purple, 3/4" wide; they open in late afternoon and close around dusk. Drought tolerant and suitable for rock gardens and xeriscaping.

Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
