Groundcovering succulent perennial, spreading into a dense green mat that can reach several feet across. Evergreen, and somewhat tolerant of foot traffic. The bright yellow flowers arrive in spring. Seedlings develop fast, and start forming a dense mat quickly, as shown in photo below (the pot contains nine seedlings). As the plants mature, the leaves fill out into chubby triangular shapes: the photo at right shows a plant in its first summer. Despite their reported hardiness range, I haven't had much success getting them through our winters; the photos at top show the single flower on the single surviving plant.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
