Description

This amazing Delosperma species was discovered in the wilds of South Africa’s East Cape at 6,000’+ near Tarkastad and brought to this country thanks to our friend and Delosperma guru, Panayoti Kelaidis, of the Denver Botanic Garden. The groundcover mats of fleshy evergreen foliage spread to 2′ in 2 years and are topped much of late spring and into early summer with eye-like upturned flowers composed of bright orange petals that morph to magenta at the base with a central white eye highlight.
