This is another one of my first Neos. It's a small, stoloniferous Neo that has beautiful red spotting on its light green leaves, and it prefers shade during the afternoon. It has survived being exposed to 32*F, north side of my house, with no protection at ground level without any damage (:

Angel Face is a compact plant. It is a cross of olens X ('Fireball' x compacta) by Michael Andreas. In strong light, the dark red tips and mottling really stand out against the chartreuse background. They should be allowed to multiply naturally.
