Full sun-part shade; although fairly drought tolerant along coast it requires regular irrigation inland. Branching succulent with fleshy propeller-like leaves that mature from light green to bright red. Grows prostrate, forming mats about 6-12in. tall to 2-3ft wide. Clusters of white flowers rest on the leaves n the summer. It is not very hardy and will be damaged with very low temperatures. Makes nice groundcover in coastal California.
