Site this excellent, carefree-growing plant where you can enjoy its beauty for many years to come. Once established, in average to dry soil, it takes care of itself—no pests or diseases ever trouble it. Flat, rounded succulent leaves are substantial and interesting, with green centers and red edges (red-bronze hues in more sun). Five-inch stems wave clusters of starry, jewel-like red flowers for many weeks at the height of summer. Deer-resistant, appeals to butterflies. Sprawling habit makes it ideal for groundcovering in open areas or a rock garden.
Does beautifully in full sun. Attains up to 6 inches tall and 15 inches wide. Zones 3-9.
