This little member of the Portulaceae
family was given this name by
Karl von Poellnitz in 1929. It is
found from the Cape Province up to Orange River in the western South
Africa. It grows in a well drained soil with almost no water and
lots of sun.
This plant was found by Bihrmann
in 2005. Dr Graham Williams was sure it is a new species. It was found in
a small area of Anysberg Park, owned by WWF. It grows in grit,
covered in lichen. It receives almost no water, but lots of sun. The
plant will grow to two centimetres in diameter and three to five centimetres
height. I did not see any flowers.
Recently, Jacques van Thiel
writes "Most certainly A. albidiflora, widespread in the
Great and Little Karoo", and I guess that is right.
