Garnet is one of the new Jewel of Desert range, ripper little ice plants that flower in the driest, dustiest places. This one glows in rich red-pink tones. Great for outback gardens as they're very heat tolerant, and can survive extreme cold too; and great for rooftop and beach gardens as they stand up to salt spray and wind.
