A South African, ground covering alpine species found growing as dense carpets of thick fleshy leaves on rocky, well drained mountainous soils. Golden yellow daisy like flowers appear in profusion in summer often almost covering the foliage and can be in flower right up to the first heavy frosts. The succulent leaves often take on a red tinge in the winter.
Reliably hardy in milder parts of the UK as long as the ground is very well drained and it is positioned in full sun. Quite happy in pots, hanging baskets, drystone walls and rockeries and can be grown as a houseplant. Maximum height is usually only a few centimetres tall with a spread of around 1 meter.
Sent as a young plant in a 9cm pot.
