Easy grower in my unheated greenhouse, but probably won't take below freezing. Makes long trailing stems, succulent leaves, blooms all summer.
Then I made the mistake of cutting it into many pieces for propagation.
Lost almost every piece to rot, except one that made a root higher up above the cut stem. Starting over with this plant. I would advise only layering for propagation. Cut stems very sensitive to bacterial rot.

The plant did not object to copious amounts of rain water during the Summer. This is a first flowering of the new growth.
