The plants have short rounded leaves closely pressed to the ground. The flowers are held in a 3cm ball atop a stem 7-10cm in height and are soft, pale pink. Flowering time is just as the new leaves of the season emerge at the beginning of the summer.
A little elf! Excellent in a pot, as the entire leaf pair covers only the area of a 2p piece! The smallest and most charming of all of the species that we grow.
This attractive dwarf form is so far only recorded from one hill near Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape where it is now endangered by habitat degradation and urban expansion.
