Fenestraria or “Baby Toes” are unusual plants. They originate from the deserts of South Africa and belong to the large family of Aizoaceae. These varieties includes plants known as “Mimicry” plants for their ability to camouflage with their environment. Fenestraria have finger-like leaves in upright clusters. On each “finger” it has a translucent window, and it is through this window that the strong sunlight is filtered to enable photosynthesis. In a habitat like the desert it is very often only these windows that are visible above the sand. In late summer through fall “Baby Toes” will bloom profusely, offering bright 2-inch yellow, daisy-like flowers. All of the plants will be shipped bare root
