This plant is native to South Africa. It has a restricted distribution at the southern end of the Namib coastal desert (between Port Nolloth and Alexander Bay and northwards into the Sperrgebiet). This is a very rare species. This rooted cutting was propagated from a plant collected by Graham Williamson and grown in his personal garden in South Africa and was gifted to us during our visit in 2009. It grows best in sun to part shade. It is from a winter rainfall area, but its habitat is so dry that the plants are mostly opportunistic and will grow when they are lucky enough to get water. Water in the summertime and keep predominately dry the rest of the year. (Keep in mind winter in South Africa is summer here in the USA). The flower is white.
