Elephant food looks like Jade Plant with smaller more compact leaves. It is much more versatile, being able to withstand summer sun as well as living in shade. Trim the top to make it spread as a low shrub or ground cover. Trim the sides and it will grow upright with a lot of character. Best grown in sandy well draining soil they will thrive with minimal care. Protect young plants from frost. Older plants can withstand light frost but could be damaged in hard freezes if not protected.
My favorite succulentI have 4 potting arrangements that are filled with a collection of various succulents. Every one of them has elephant's food featured because it works so well and has a nice trailing look. Moon Valley has great elephant's food, go get some!
