The genus is monotypic, consisting of only one species – Jensenobrotrya lossowiana. The plants are low-growing and form dense mats. The leaves are egg-shaped and resemble bunches of grapes, hence the name. The leaves are smooth and grayish-green to purple in color. The flowers are pink and appear in the autumn and winter. Jensenobrotrya is endemic to Namibia and found only at Spencer’s Head in Spencer Bay.
Cultivation Notes: The plants are easily propagated from seed or cuttings and prefer sandy, well-drained soil. Their native habitat is cool and foggy, so they are sensitive to strong light and burn easily. They benefit from morning sun, regular misting, and warmth.
