Anacampseros Overview

Anacampseros telephiastrum is a small succulent herb. It is named after an ancient name for herbs that restore lost love. They are planted for their attractive stubby succulent leaves. The plants form clumping and basal rosettes with colours that intensify with more light. The flowers only open in high density light and often the flower will not open in greenhouses. In England it was grown in the 1700's.
