Succulent dark green leaves, 1"wide bright pink fragrant flowers on thin 8"-10"H. Native to the West Coast. Adapted to dryer Summer. Needs good drainage. Keep in container or in cracks of a rock wall. Can get damaged in Winter, it is better to grow it in its pot in the ground, and either cover it or bring it in to the greenhouse in Winter, overwatering it will cause root rot and kill it. It does get seeds but I don't know how succesful one might be in propagation.
