A rosette-forming succulent that has striking oblong green leaves with a blushing red tinge to them when placed in bright light or full sun. Pretty pink to yellow small flowers bloom in spring. It prefers an open, sunny position in a well-drained soil and is ideal for containers, rockeries, borders and garden beds.

If your succulent looks like it's stretching out of its pot it's a sign it's not getting enough light. Once this happens it's difficult to get your succulent back to a compact shape. You can try propagating the plant, taking a cutting one to two inches from the plant's base. Place the cutting in a shady spot and give it just a little water (make sure it's not bone-dry) and let it re-shoot new growth.
While it's important to water your plant during spring and early summer as it's growing, do not over water it. Let the soil dry out between watering in summer and tail-off with the return of cooler weather.
