Rose pink flowers are born atop fleshy stems that rise above the basal foliage. Each individual flower is short-lived, but a mature plant can produce over 100 flowers. You can find this succulent-like plant growing wild in rocky and sandy soil in full sun. It's a perfect plant for the rock garden, or in particularly rocky soils.
