Ebracteola wilmaniae is my favorite new mesemb. It’s easy to grow, but we think it’s not hardy so we have it indoor. Of course it’s from South Africa where it grows in gravelly soil and limestone. It can get up to 20″ of rain in habitat so it’s probably hardy here, but I’m not going to be the one to try it.
The post title is in fact one of it’s South African common names.
Usually they bloom white, so this pink flowering individual is a rarity.
And here’s what the rest of the plant looks like.
