Succulents- ‘Karoo Rose’ Lapidaria Margaretae
The cutest little thing you’ve ever seen! Karoo Rose (Lapidaria margaretae) is a pale blue-green to pink rarity related to Lithops and other “Living Stone” plants. These unusual-looking succulents have thick, three-sided leaves and their leaf texturing and pastel colors help them camouflage against quartz and other rock in their native Namibian and South African habitats. In the wild, they can bloom multiple times each winter with large, shiny yellow flowers up to 2.0" wide, blooming during the day and closing up at night.
The Karoo Rose is adapted to sunny, arid conditions with little rainfall and will not tolerate low-light or over-watering. They need rapidly draining gritty soil and a pot with a drainage hole. Plants should be watered when the soil is dry in the fall growing season and lightly in spring, but left to dry during winter and summer dormancy. This species tolerates only very short, light frosts but grows reliably on sunny window sills.
