Ceraria namaquensis is a species of succulent shrub, native to the border between South Africa and Namibia.
The stems grow upwards, spreading and forking and are covered by many short, spiky succulent like leaves. A profusion of small pink flowers are seen in spring. In Summer the leaves drop off altogether when dry arid conditions are greatest in its native habitat and the plant enters a short dormant stage, this is normal and the leaves will grow back quickly. This is a beautiful and unusual plant for the collector.
This species is not difficult to grow, however, it requires extremely coarse, well-drained soil, and sparse watering.
