Spreading groundcover with reddish-brown stems and ½ inch long green or variegated succulent leaves. Can produce tiny pale lavender flowers near the branch tips in summer months but is unlikely in an irrigated landscape. Does well in sun or shade. Very drought tolerant but if you want it to spread it does need irrigation. Can be kept too almost any size with pruning. Native to South Africa where it is said to be a favorite of elephants but is widely browsed by wild and domestic animals. Rabbits don’t seem to especially like it though. Used to help with soil erosion and is described as a carbon sponge.
