Talinum Caffrum - Caudex Forming Succulent
This caudex forming plant is native to East and southern African regions, and has a swollen above ground tuber which stores water for the plant. The caudex itself can grow to around 15 cm in height and diameter, and fleshy dark green oval leaves are produced during the growing season on short stems.
During the dry period, the plant dies back to the caudex, until wetter weather arrives in the next season.
Frost tender, keep a minimum temperature of around 10°C
