Love, love, love this little plant. I had never heard of it before. Bought some late last summer; did a little research, dug out a pretty big hole and poured in some cactus potting mix, and apparently Little Peach is happy there next to a big sedum. Her location is fairly sheltered from the afternoon sun. I have never watered or fertilized or anything else--she just likes to be left alone. She started blooming in mid-April and is still going strong. This is a very charming plant, and one that you don't see too often here in Minnesota.
Update - I pulled off blooms/stems as they died off, and this plant kept blooming until mid-summer.
