The best plant ever !!! I live in central Florida and was looking for a plant that can handle the heat. It looks beautiful in my planters paired with Draceana Marginata.So hardy ! So easy and it grows and grows ! The little pink flowers pop out all over. Anyone who sees it wants to buy it.It gets so thick and lush.It also can be used as ground cover which I am sure is great.

Lovely little dew. The foliage is wonderful, and the tiny pink blooms are a nice contrast. This dew needs more air ventilation than its plain leaf counterpart, so it's best not to let it get too crowded (or run over by the plain leaf!). Easy to prop and a nice accent plant in a pot.
