A little stunner, with the emphasis not just on the little, though this is indeed a low growing fleshy leaved plant that will carpet a dry spot and brighten it up all summer long with its vibrant garnet red flowers that shade inwards through pink to white with a yellow centre. And yes, it is hardy. Sunny spot. Well drained soil. 4 in. 1 litre pot.
