Great "cute appeal." Love the pink color, and there is plenty of it. I have mine in pots, and have had complete success. Plan to try one or two in-ground plants with other succulants next spring. Easy to propogate with just a leaf, like sedums. No die-back at 28 degrees, our coldest weather so far this winter, though I have placed one in window-sill of shed just in case!
