Choice and rare (key elements for us!) succulent from the Steenkampsberg in Mpumalanga in South Africa where it grows a in gritty humus among granitic outcrops and experiences occasional snowfall.  This was first described in 1995 so is new on the scene although the roots have long been used to boost the kick in tribal brews.  Pink flowers.  Good drainage is going to be key in winter rain areas and a nice gravel mulch is going to help a lot.
