At last! A plant that not only tolerates, but positively thrives in dry, hot, sunny borders and rockeries! The succulent, fleshy-leaved plants cover the ground quickly, and become clothed in a rich carnival of colour all summer long.
Culinary note: Leaves can be eaten raw, mainly being used as a spinach substitute. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sparkle brighter! 2011-06-10
I trialled Sparkle against a cheaper mix this year as I was dubious of the claims that it would flower all summer. It won by a mile as indeed it did flower for much longer and was healthier, the cheaper mix was lost to mildew weeks earlier and I still have a few plants of Sparkle still in flower in October!
