Avonia Quinaria is a dwarf perennial caudiciform plant with a large, turnip-shaped rootstock buried to its rim, surmounted with myriads of silvery white stems, flush with the ground. The flowers are delicately shaded with pale pink and the largest of the Avonia section. It is considered the showiest of all avonias.
Flowers: Usually  in shades of pink, solitary, about 3 cm in diameter.
Although regarded as a choice and difficult plant, in cultivation it is relatively easy. It is a particular favorite of caudiciform plant enthusiasts.
Growth rate: Plants grow very slowly, and caudex take many years to enlarge. Clustering in cultivation, if grown correctly, it will reward the grower with generous displays of tiny flowers.
Watering Needs: Water normally in the growing season from March to October. No water should ever be allowed to stand around the roots. Keep almost completely dry in winter. The swollen caudex makes it very tolerant of under watering.
Hardiness: It is quite frost resistant if kept dry, hardy as low as -5° C. It can be grown outdoors in the summer months to benefit from direct exposure to light, and especially exposure to high summer temperatures. Recommended Temperature Zone: USDA 10-12.
Sun Exposure: This plant has an excellent heat tolerance and need full sun to light shade exposures. High levels of light are needed to flower and for good plant development.
