Succulent  Avonia papyracea namaensis is a native of South Africa and Namibia. It is the largest known Avonia belonging to the Portulacaceae family. The plant consists of a mass of miniature stems that either branch as creepers or grow erect. These stems do not grow more than 5 to 10 cm in height. In the case of the plant growing from a seed, the branches grow from a tuber-like root. Between summer to fall, each stem of this plant produces a solitary flower that is tiny and whitish-green in color. The plant is frost-hardy, slow-growing, and needs light shade to full sun for optimal growth. It is commonly known by the botanical name only.
