Very attractive leaves, with a trailing/mat forming habit. This plant puts forth a profusion of small white flowers during the warmer months.

As enjoyable as this plant is, the flowers smell sweet yet funky. This is not uncommon among succulents - just be prepared to have a hint of the smell waft by your nose every once and awhile while working in the garden. =]
