This perennial, succulent herb is interesting not only because of its ‘round foot’, but also because it flowers pretty much year around, and doesn’t seem to need a dormant period.
This ‘round foot’ is where it stores its water reserves that are its stock for dry periods. M. rubellum is particularly priced by the specialist collector.
