Anacampseros rufescens 'Sand Rose'

$ 6.00
Size: 2”

Anacampseros rufescens, also known as ‘Sand Rose,’ is a particularly drought-tolerant succulent forms small, star-shaped rosettes comprised of fleshy, triangular leaves that are dark olive green in dimmer lighting conditions, but will ‘stress’ to purple in bright light. A slow-grower, this variety will eventually form dense mats of clumping foliage up to 24 inches wide, making a perfect accent for rock gardens in temperate climates, or as a ‘filler’ component of indoor succulent arrangements.

While Anacampseros rufescens can tolerate partial shade, it will display its richest coloration in bright sunlight. Ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface is crucial to stave off rot and pests, as is potting this succulent in porous soil with adequate drainage. Sensitive to overwatering, be sure to water this variety thoroughly only when the soil has become completely dry. Hardy to Zone 9, while this succulent can tolerate cooler temperatures, be sure to protect it from frost to avoid scarring the fleshy leaves.

Bright pink flowers will emerge on short stems in the late spring or early summer, which will open in the afternoon and close again by nightfall. If you have pets or small children in the home, be sure to place Anacampseros rufescens out of their reach, as its leaves and stems are considered toxic.


Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
