Grow in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Prefers a dryish, sandy soil. Good tolerance for drought and heat. Good soil drainage is essential for growing this plant well. Avoid over-watering, but do not allow soils to totally dry out. Although plants are reportedly winter hardy to USDA Zone 4, winter survival can still be a problem if soils are not sharply drained and remain moist to wet for extended periods of time. Siting plants on a raised bed may be helpful. Plants spread along the ground sometimes rooting as they go to form an attractive ground cover. Cuttings root easily. Succulent leaves pushed into soil will often root to form new plants.
