Albuca namaquensis (syn. Albuca circinata) is native to stony sandstone slopes from Namibia to the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Plants grow up to 30 cm high. The leaves are scabrid (rough or scaly) or hairy or smooth. If hairs are present, they are not glandular. In dry and sunny conditions its leaves coil like Albuca spiralis and thus these plants are often mistakenly called A. spiralis. In cultivation, the leaves may remain evergreen if water is available. The photo below was taken by Mary Sue Ittner near Middelpos in the Roggeveld. This plant is typically different from the other ones in cultivation in having a reddish pedicel.

Origin and Habitat: Endemic to the southern part of Sierra de San Luis (Argentina, Province of San Luis) within a radius of only 20 km.

A terrific resource for rare plants!

Great packaging, fast shipping, beautiful plants that arrive healthy and thriving. I have purchased a number of delicate species from Planet Desert and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you Planet Desert!
