BABY SUN ROSE

Aptenia cordifolia

£1.95£6.85

Aptenia cordifolia is the star succulent in our greenhouse – every time I offer a visiting friend to pick a succulent plant, they inevitably choose this one! I love aptenias because they are role models for all of our succulent plants. They grow in dry soil with little watering but come up with an amazing display of heart-shaped bright green leaves and almost fluorescent warm pink flowers in summer and autumn.

Description

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: The Plants require very low maintenance and are practically trouble free.

  • Soil: free draining, we use cactus compost.
  • Sun exposure: preferably a sunny spot, in such situation leaves develop orangey tint. It is a robust plant that will do well on a south or west  facing windowsill.
  • Watering: only when the soil is completely dry.
  • Hardiness: RHS hardiness classification is H2 suggesting tender – however we overwinter them in an unheated greenhouse and they show no damage after an occasional frosty night. That said we are in Surrey and the winters are mild. So if you after a permanent display in an unheated conservatory or a rain-protected patio in London, this plant is one the succulents worth trying.
PLANT INFO: Aptenia cordofolia is a fast-growing trailing succulent that is perfect as an indoor plant or for hanging baskets.
  • Latin Name: Aptenia cordifolia
  • Common Name: Baby Sun Rose
  • Origin: South Africa
  • Ultimate size: 60cm 18 inches
