Rock Purslane - Calandrinia grandiflora


This photo doesn't do the color of these flowers justice. As with most succulents, the true colors are like neon lights. These are something you'd want to plant in the sunniest part of your yard, as they can get a bit leggy if they are in partial shade. And like other succulents, the flowers will only open in the full sun. If you want them to spread out fast, don't treat them like a cactus. Water and fertilize regularly and they will reward you.
