Native to South Africa, this small plant has been grown and cultivated in gardens around the world for centuries. The Tulista pumila is a small, slow-growing succulent with an average height of about 4 inches (10 cm). Its leaves are fleshy and gray-green in color, growing up to 1 inch (2.5 cm) long. The leaves are arranged in rosettes on the stems, giving the plant its characteristic round shape. In summer months, the Tulista pumila produces delicate white flowers that have five petals each. These flowers appear on short stalks and have a sweet scent that attracts bees and other pollinators.

It should be watered regularly during the growing season but allowed to dry out between waterings. It can also tolerate some shade but may not flower as profusely if grown in too much shade. This succulent has been popular for centuries due to its unique appearance and ease of care; it was first described by botanist Carl Thunberg in 1794 as part of his work on South African flora. Today, it is widely cultivated around the world as an ornamental plant in gardens and containers alike.
