Cephalophyllum pillansii

Cephalophyllum pillansii Cephalophyllum pillansii

This mat-forming 5" high succulent from South Africa has very pretty shiny primrose yellow flowers with many petals in a star burst arrangement, some with dark centers. Bloom time is usually only in the Spring, but sometimes the plant will put on a show later in the season as well. The flowers are each about 2 1/2” wide, & open only during sunny days. Foliage is grey green & forms long finger-like leaves. Floriferous & very cute! Makes a great groundcover for a dry bed or parking strip, or as a trailer in pots or at the edge of a rock wall.
