Fairly common, this, I think I still have some. I have put succulents very much to the side these last few years so many have either overgrown, or died!

This is one of the succulent types that has been cultivated in Maltese gardens for many long years, before the relatively recent rush of importation of all types of species by garden centres.

It's a "classic" in a way just like Lampranthus, etc. so anyone with the slightest interest would have a specimen or two.

And I did have more than just a slight interest... ;-)
