“Candy Bush!” I thought when I saw this beautiful and rare South African groundcover burst into flower for the first time. Fun 1.25” candy-like pinwheels almost cover the dense, bluish, succulent leaved mound late Fall thru Spring. To 1’ tall and 3’ across, give it good drain­age, not too much fertility and keep it on the dry side for sweetest appearance. Easy and SO rewarding! Thanks to the Ruth Bancroft Garden for sharing this gem! You can cut the plant back by half once a year in the Spring to control its size if you like.
