This tough perennial forms a spreading mat of deep-red succulent leaves. Clusters of tiny rose-pink flowers appear during summer. Great for massing as a drought-tolerant lawn substitute, also nice between flagstones or as an edging. Able to withstand poor, dry soil conditions and will fill in relatively quickly. Easy to propagate; simply break pieces off in early summer and stick them in the ground. Deciduous; trim stems and dead flower heads back in early spring or for large areas consider mowing. Fairly shade tolerant although plants might not flower very well.
