A fantastic breeding breakthrough and one of our most popular plants, Delosperma Jewel of the Desert really pack a punch with their intense flower colours for many months. Vigorous carpet-like mats of succulent, blue-green, evergreen foliage cover the soil creating wonderful weed-suppressing groundcover and are literally blanketed by a profusion of neon-coloured daisy-like flowers continuously from spring until the first frosts. Bees and butterflies love the nectar and pollen rich blooms whilst deer tend to leave them alone. Delosperma are also known as the Ice Plant, so called because of the tiny hairs on the surface of the leaves that play with the light so it looks like they are sparkling. Native to Southern and Eastern Africa, Delosperma are often seen growing on rocky mountainsides and along rocky coastal areas. Tougher than they look, Delosperma Jewel of the Desert easily cope with heat and drought and prefer to be grown in well-drained soil in sun or part shade, and resent their roots getting too wet. Reaching approximately 10-15cm high when mature, each spreading to around 25cm. As fully hardy perennials, they will thrive outside all year round with no winter protection required.
