FAscinating miniature suckering plant that looks like a crop of warty, colorful (pink, turquoise and brown) succulent fat leaves coming right up out of the ground. Great in pots (see photo). No idea on hardiness since only plant seen was in a cold frame.

Have some in the ground now, and though the plant loses a lot of its nice, weird compact look in fall when flowering, it slowly seems to recover, right before winter, and starts to look good again.
