Delosperma basuticum

This species is from the Drakensburg Mountains of South Africa and has proved reliably hardy here if given good drainage. It resents our long winter rains so we use crushed basalt gravel as a mulch. The plant forms a congested, evergreen mat of narrow succulent leaves. Try this in a rockery or on a slope. The bright yellow rayed flowers of Delosperma basuticum are large and showy.

Late spring to early summer.  1-2 in. x 6-8 in.

Yellow flowers
