This member of the Crassulaceae family was described by Joseph Anton Purpus in 1919. It's from north-eastern Mexico, growing in well-drained soil with some water and lots of sun. It will grow to 25 centimetres, the flowers are white with a pink centre. It can be reproduced both by seeds, cuttings and leaves. I fount this one on Amager in 2003.
