Your title confused me at first. Here in the eastern USA, a sand rose is a plant whose roots 'crawl' along the sand and produce roses. Thank you for telling me of a different type of sand rose; this is a wonderful capture of one.

I have one of these in my rock collection from when I was a child! I gave the collection to my daughter. The roses always amazed me, wonderful shot!
