Miniature caudiciform plant with succulent roots and stem. Itty bitty leaves and pretty pink flowers off and on during the year (never really paid attention to when they bloomed). In a pot this plant can be raised up to see succulent roots, and then raised again- makes a nice little bonsai-like specimen. Or it can be planted as groundcover.
