Description

The Delosperma Jewel of Desert series is a breeding breakthrough for the delosperma species, commonly known as ice plant. These new genetics produce carpetlike mats of succulent foliage with neon-colored daisy-type flowers. Jewel of Desert is the result of new breeding from Koichiro Nishikawa of Japan, represented in North America by Concept Plants. These are a new generation of delosperma that will bloom continuously from spring until the first frost. With their cascading effect, Delosperma Jewel of Desert varieties are excellent plants for borders, rock gardens, or patio pots and planters.
