Lol, this plant really goes by many names. And you need to be a bit careful when handling it.

Quote:  The Oyster Plant is succulent looking, it can be used to make a dense groundcover.
As other plants in the same family, the watery sap can provoke allergic reaction. Avoid having any on your skin.   'Compacta' and 'Vittata' are 2 common cultivars.

  17. What an interesting little flower! My favourite shot is the second one - maybe the stamens appear more delicate in that one...
    I can't imagine using a plant like this as ground cover...
