What is this plant. It looks somewhat like some kind of Anacampseros?? IT has little pink blooms held up in a stalk, the seed pods dry and look somewhat like an onion skin before the seeds fall??

I believe this one is likely Anacampseros rufescens.

I agree that this is the closest resemblance I can find. Just how hardy is Anacampserous supposed to be? Dave's Garden site says A. rufscens is a 9b planet. Well mine have seen 5F twice and 11F one winter with zero damage? How is it possible for it to be that much more hardy than reputed to be?? IT is growing in a raised bed with white gravel covered soil in south facing position. IT gets very hot in summer, but the site and the gravel raise the hardiness some, but from a 9b to 5F? What do you think? Thanks so much for your response.
