Found this in a container with two other different succulents none of them identified. Took it home. Made cuttings for inside and outside. It grows like mad everywhere I've tried it. Now that I have a positive ID I'll be sure to bring it in for winter. Blooms will be a bonus cuz I love it regardless!

A 3 pot planted in March 2016, had grown to about 1 tall x 2 wide (in full sun) by January, 2017, when I took 5-6 large cuttings from it to plant next to the mother plant. Started blooming in December 2017.

Grows almost too well here in St. Petersburg, FL, but I haven't been able to get it to bloom. It's readily propogated by cuttings. Just lay a branch on the soil and water frequently (but don't keep soggy) and it'll send out roots. Then, cut it into pieces with each piece having its own roots. Even though mine hasn't flowered, I still like it for the leaves.

Attractive profusely blooming succulent with flat blue-green leaves (that turn pinkish in cooler weather). THis plant is a great spot of red-pink color for any xeriscape garden needing winter color.
