Delosperma Jewel of the Desert collection

A fantastic breeding breakthrough. Carpet-like mats of succulent foliage with masses of neoncoloured daisy flowers. Bred in Japan, where garden space is limited so flower power is very important, these incredible plants produce flowers continuously from spring until the first frosts. Commonly known as the ice plant, they can withstand the toughest environments and still shine like a jewel. Beautiful when planted alongside paths or grown between crevices. Prefers well-drained soil in sun or part shade. Height 10-15cm (4-6"). Spread 25cm (10"). Fully hardy perennials. Supplied as young plants.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
