This plant SPREADS!!! Because I have the whole mass of plant contained in a bed a med. sized stones, they completly cover them in the Summer with leaves of the richest lime green and tiny yellow flowers that are lovely among the rocks. They are also evergreen, even in the coldest whether. The flowers last throughout the Summer with an electric yellow that is simply ravishing! I just ADORE this succulent!
