Moderate to fast-growing succulent to 4-6” tall x 12-16” wide. This popular variety is prized for its showy white-margined, jade-green leaves that develop an attractive pink tinge in cooler weather. Adding further appeal are the dainty clusters of butterfly and bee-attracting, star-shaped pink flowers that appear atop the attractive foliage in summer.  Well-suited as a dry-area groundcover, in borders, medians, containers, mixed succulent plantings or rock gardens. Tolerates heat and poor soil provided it’s fast-draining, and requires little water once established, though a more robust-looking planting is achieved with light, regular watering. Thrives in a full to partial sun exposure.
