Variegated Sand Rose

Anacampseros rufescens is native to South Africa and grows to about 3 inches in height. It's ideal for a dish garden and right now I'm trying to decide what other succulents to plant with it. It hasn't bloomed yet but usually does in late Spring or early Summer. It will have purple-rose colored flowers about two inches high. I haven't smelled one but I've heard they are mildly fragrant.

I'll be coming back to this plant later, it's a beauty.
