Anacampseros telephuastrum

$ 5.00

The Sand Rose is a clumping succulent which spreads into beautiful ground cover but will only reach a few centimetres in height. Each beautifully formed rosette consists of bright green fleshy leaves with deep purple undersides. A unique characteristic of this succulent is that it will grow numerous fine white “stipule hairs” around the centre of the rosette earning this succulent it’s own aire of charm.

Sand Rose

Botanical Name: Anacampseros telephuastrum 

Common Names: Sand Rose, Anacampseros, Anacampseros Sunrise, Boesmansuring.

A mature Sand Rose will produce crooked stems up to 10cm long, lined with attractive pink fragrant flowers. These flowers are about 3cm in diameter and are mostly fuchsia with beautifully contrasted bright yellow anthers. Unlike other succulents, the stunning flowers on this Anacampseros will only bloom during the day, then retract for protection during the night.

This succulent is native to South Africa where it thrives in dry and hot climates. This can be replicated in Australian gardens by allowing the plant to dry out between deep watering and keeping drier in the winters.

Due to quarantine laws Ezy Care Succulents can only post to QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and ACT. We are currently seeking approval to post to WA, TAS and NT, so please join our facebook group to receive updates of when we can ship to you.


All plants are removed from their pots and all soil cleaned away as this is the safest and cleanest way of shipping. Succulents are extremely hardy, and this will not harm your plants but will just appear "dry and thirsty". Easy instructions on how to repot and care for your succulents are included with every order.

By preparing your plants with bare roots helps comply with quarantine regulations and also minimises shipping costs to our customers, making Ezy Care Succulents a very cost-effective way of purchasing your plants.

All orders are packaged with environmentally friendly recycled paper to ensure safe freight and reduce damage to the plant.


Only the healthiest, top quality plants are selected from the Ezy Care Succulents nursery for your order. The size, colour, and shape of your shipment may vary according to the season, or when shipping to colder areas. All succulents are slightly dried prior to packaging and may look different to the photo. Preparation instructions are included in every order which are specific to the plants that you have ordered, and usually only take a few days to recover.

Even though many of our succulents are known for their agricultural and medicinal uses, all the plants at the Ezy Care Succulents nursery are propagated for ornamental purposes only. Please ensure that you have conducted your own thorough research if you intend on consuming these plants, as we recommend against human consumption.
