Nananthus margaretifera 

(This plant comes in a 3.5" pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots.)

Nananthus are easy and rewarding plants. They grow on winter rain areas and were heading for summer dormancy. Suggestions have been made to keep them cool, shaded and dry in summer. This species usually "wakes up" in mid-Fall. Water minimally in summer, only when the plant starts shriveling. (but it is indeed a very adaptable species that can grows opportunistically in summer too if the water availability and growing condition are favorable). Requires good drainage. Keep cool in summer, need full sun or light shade on the other seasons. Frost Tolerance: Will take a small amount of frost for a short time (it is reported to be hardy to at least -12° C if very dry).
