IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT

We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plants
out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them
into a pot with moist soil. Give
the roots opportunity to reachdown for water.
Please check to see if your plants should be watered at
the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing.
We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time.
A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Anacampseros 'Sunrise'

Anacampseros Sunrise, related to the more familiar Portulaca, is native to South Africa (Karoo) and forms small spiraling star-shaped rosettes with fleshy dark olive green pointed leaves that turn purple in bright light. Attractive, white filament-like hairs are present along the stems adding a nice contrast to the dark foliage. Single flowers arise on 3”-4” stems above the leaves and are pink to rose-purple, 3/4" wide, and resemble flattened Portulaca flowers; they open in late afternoon closing every night. It grows best with full sun to partial shade and ample airflow, with a well-drained soil mix. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Drought tolerant, and suitable for rock gardens and xeriscaping, the slowly creeping stems cluster freely to form mats as a small area ground cover about 4” tall and wide. A. rufescens also makes an excellent potted windowsill plant. It has good cold tolerance but protect from frost to avoid scarring. When mature they reach up to 6". They bloom throughout the year, opening in the afternoon and closing in early evening. Their color is usually white to pale purple. The more light, the brighter more vivid colors. To propagate plant seeds Anacampseros are from South Africa. When mature they can reach up to 6 inches. They grow flowers intermittently throughout the year, generally in summer. They open in the afternoon and close in early evening. Their color is usually white to pale purple.
