Description
Calandrinia grandiflora (C. spectabilis)(Cistanthe g.) is a shrubby, mounding evergreen succulent perennial with fleshy grey-green elliptic-shaped foliage and tall slender stems supporting brilliant magenta cup-shaped flowers that appear to be floating above the foliage. Rock Purslane is stunning in the garden when planted in mass.
Plant care

Thrives in lean, porous, well-drained, sandy soils. Prefers full sun, but tolerates light shade. Water regularly during first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates drought. Apply a balanced, controlled-release fertilizer or a side dressing of compost in early spring.
