Mat forming succulent with fuchsia-colored flowers with white centers. This cultivar claims to be winter hardy to zone 4, where most iceplants are only hardy to zone 6. It is important that these plants have dry soils, that are well-drained, too much moisture can cause crown rot. Very drought-tolerant and heat-loving.

These succulents have been given a fire-resistance score of 10, by Idahofirewise.org. This score means they are considered a low-ignition plant due to their high moisture content, low growth, and other characteristics. Idaho Firewise suggests 5 feet as the minimum distance from your home.
