The Sunrise Succulent is a member of the Portulacaceae family, which includes the well-known garden plant Purslane. This low-maintenance, easy-to-care-for succulent is ideal for beginners.
Anacampseros rufescens is a small, distinctive, low-growing plant native to South Africa. It gets its name from its beautiful, soft pink or purplish-red flowers that bloom in the early morning.
Look for small, fleshy leaves that are green or gray-green in color to identify this succulent. The leaves form a rosette pattern and have a waxy or velvety texture, and it also has thin, wiry stems and small, tube-like flowers that bloom early in the morning. The plant can grow up to 0.5 ft (15 cm) tall and spread up to a foot wide, making it an ideal container plant.
