Phemeranthus Rafinesque. Rock-pink, Fameflower.

Key to Phemeranthus

A genus of about 25 species, herbs and dwarf shrubs, mainly of North America (1 species in Argentina). Our North American "Talinums" are not closely related to the broad-leaved type of Talinum and are transferred to Phemeranthus (Kiger 2001). Adaptation of our native species of Phemeranthus to different rock substrates is discussed by Ware & Pinion (1990).
