Notes for the Genus:

Aptenia

The genus Aptenia is limited to the coastal areas of the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa, though they now have spread well beyond that range. The plants form mats and will climb, and flower all year round. The tender, herbaceous appearance of these mesembs belie a hardy sprawler. They are commonly planted as ground cover in California, where they have become somewhat invasive. They do make nice subjects for hanging pots. Plants are easily propagated from cuttings or from seed.
