Their rosettes of variegated foliage edged in pink to red are beautiful and eye-catching.

The plant is monocarpic, which means that it dies after flowering. 

Best Locations For Growing Sunburst Succulent

Sunburst Succulent like full direct sun to partial shade. It can be grown indoors if given enough light. Full sun turns the pink leaf edges to a deeper red.

Sunburst Succulent Care

Sunburst can bruise easily with moderate impact or movement; the bruised foliage can be removed. 

Watering Sunburst Succulent
