Found in a resort's
small succulent garden
two weeks ago on the SW coast of Kauai
Planted in well drained soil near some Sedum Nussbaumerium, Euphorbia lactae and some cacti and other euphorbias, this fleshy succulent on a woody stem had the deepest purple leaves I have ever seen on something that appears to be a sedum.
I wasn't allowed to bring any back leaves back to the mainland (believe me I asked!).
The fallen leaves were rooting on the cindery soil near the mother plants as succulents typically do.
I would love to know what this might be and if anyone knows where to find it.
The sedum nussbaumerium is quite orange so the soil is dry, which may be catalyzing the strong purple color of this plant.
