Monsonia herrei (Syn.: Sarcocaulon herrei)

A neat Winter grower, the Sarcocaulon name has been officially absorbed by Monsonia for some time, but because of morphological differences, it still is mostly known as Sarcocaulon. It can be used to great effect in a bonsai container.
A member of the Geraniaceae family, it hails from Namaqualand, Northern Cape Province, Republic of South Africa.
