Central Phoenix -- Memsembryanthemum "Mauve" does not do well in my garden. I had a row of it that lasted for at least 5 years in light shade with frequent watering, growing through several very cold winters (for Phoenix). It abruptly died and attempts to restart it have lasted only a couple years before dying.
