Very easy to grow. I started this plant from a cutting and now I have several plants throughout the garden. In full shade they remain green, and in full sun they become a brilliant red/orange. They look great in succulent garden, planted with blue toned agaves and red/black/purple (stressed) aloes. They give a similar effect as euphorbia "sticks on fire". They are flowering for me now in October in central, inland California.

Easy to grow and with that incendiary color a very showy plant. Attractive in flower too. I was surprised at how hardy this plant is.Cold that can nip a jade plant didn't affect "Campfire" this year.

Good small fast growing (bordering on invasive!) plant for the garden- excellent winter color- much greener in summer. Great for pots, too.
Very fleshy, soft brilliant lime green to bright red succulent leaves. Flowers in fall only, in Southern California at least. Plants get quite 'leggy' and unattractive at this time, and flowers do not smell good, so is a good time of year to trim them back substantially.
