Description

Arrived here as an uninvited guest on a plant from elsewhere, and very invasive unfortunately. Mostly decorative, forms a low spreading semi-evergreen, turning red under stress in summer. Small shiny leaves and sparse small pink blooms. Prefers a rocky slope or border edge.

Cultivation

Weeding out requires getting the root as well as the top.
