Anacampseros is the ancient name for an herb that was supposed to restore lost love. The genus Anacampseros used to have a larger number of species. It has now been split in 3 genus: Anacampseros and Avonia from South Africa, and Grahamia with species in the Americas and Australia.
Anacampseros form clumping rosettes of succulent leaves. They develop a small caudex as they age. They won't take any frost.
The flowers come from time to time in summer, and they open on sunny days only. They are self-fertile and produce seeds in a cup or upright filaments.
