Avonia buderiana

Habitat and ecology: It is small highly specialized plant that grows in full sun on high quartz ridges and slopes in arid conditions. The unique white scales reflect much of the light and act as sun-shades over the tiny leaves beneath. Whole plants mimic bird droppings or the white rocks in which they frequently grow and have been regarded as "mimicry plants", for long escaping the eyes of even the most attentive field workers.

Description: The leaf covering stipules are silvery-white, overlapping, scale-like but loosely positioned over the tiny leaves and adpressed to the stems. They give the plant an untidy, characteristic papery appearance. In the typical plants the scale tips are turned outwards.

Flowers: White and scented with about 15 stamens. The beige-brown withered flower remains from the previous season can be seen on the bigger stems of the plant.

Water Requirements: Drought-tolerant
Bloom Time: Mid-summer

Beautiful but tiny

I should know better than to order 2” plants. This plant is so tiny I just don’t think it’s going to make it. I love it but I’m sorry I purchased it at 2”. It was expensive also. Planet Desert did their usual great job of packing and sending out right away. It’s really no fault of theirs. Just a word of caution to order the larger size if available.
