A lovely native succulent with masses of bright pink flowers, Hot Stuff is a superbly tough and useful groundcover which does well on a wide range of soil types, including saline and sand. Rooting at the nodes makes it a great plant for soil stabilising. The foliage is fire retardant, so can be used for plantings close to buildings in bush fire prone areas instead of more flammable plants. Plant in full sun to part shade. It can take frost, heat and salt spray, but excess heat and cold can slow the growth and flowering. All parts of Disphyma are edible, the leaves can be used for stir fries, salads and for pickling.
