Today I've finally received the two plants I've been admiring for so long - thanks Atomic Plant Nursery :) - Avonia quinaria ssp. alstonii and Avonia quinaria ssp. quinaria. These are quite unusual tiny plants with strange silky branches and a caudex. If you google the name you'll see that the most amazing part are the flowers. Especially the white flowering ssp. alstonii has huge flowers compared to the plant itself. I'll watch them closely to figure out what they need and wait for flowers.
(The pancakes in the background are lesliei ssp. burchellii)
Avonia quinaria ssp. quinaria will have pink flowers.
You might call them old potatoes but they really ARE beautiful!
