Also known as Rock Pink, Fame Flower is an interesting, small succulent that is easily grown in containers in sunny areas. Because it is a small plant, it does not compete with larger, more aggressive plants--container gardens may be ideal. It grows naturally on glades where it faces less competition. The flowers open in the afternoon, normally from noon until dark. Fame flower is easy to grow from seed.

Uses: Rock gardens, drought tolerant, container gardens, bees
Bloom time:  June - September

Height: 6 to 12 inches
Space: 4 to 6 inches

Moisture: Dry

My favorite plant!
This plant is incredible! It took off right after I planted it and it bloomed prolifically. The flowers are a intense hot pink color. The blooms bob around in the wind which makes them really nice to watch. I planted rock pink in a container in full sun with sandy soil and it never needed to be watered. I'm using prickly pear cactus as a companion plant. This plant produced hundreds of easy-to-collect seeds so I'm hoping to have a lot more rock pink pop up this year!
