Information from the Plant Delights Nursery website:

An unidentified species collected from high alpine elevations near the town of Beaufort West in the Nieuwveld Mountains (South African Karroo). Slow-spreading. Good for the well-drained rock garden. Blooms tiny, light pink flowers with yellow eyes in mid spring until temperatures settle above 90 degrees F for the summer. Doesn't appreciate summer rains or high humidity. At the Denver Botanic Garden, it flowers all summer.
