Thought now to be an archeophyte (introduced to Britain before 1500AD), this plant is a successful coloniser of stony, gravelly or rocky ground. It is grown as a garden plant and the succulent nature of the leaves mean that small fragments of the plant can survive and take root elsewhere. It is now fairly common throughout England, Wales, and Ireland and only uncommon in northern Scotland.
