A vibrant cultivar of a favourite coastal native, this groundcover succulent is perfect for rockeries, dry poor soils, frontline beach properties, waterwise gardens, bank binding. Aussie Rambler™ is a beefy pigface - much bigger flowers than the species form; grows taller, and more upright; and can survive temperatures as low as -8C which makes it ideal for outback and southern gardens.
