Delosperma

Submitted by Broekhuis on Sun, 06/08/2014 - 19:52

My clump of succulent labeled "Delosperma cooperi" produced a yellow flower yesterday. It's possible I shuffled the tag into the wrong position in an overhaul of the rock garden earlier this spring- but I haven't attempted to grow D. congestum for years, and never seemed to get lasting seedlings when I did. I did attempt Bergeranthus jamesii in 2012 and 2013, but am pretty sure they didn't survive the winter. Another case of confused seed identity?

Delosperma nubigenum

 

congestum is more well...congested.


Thanks. Now that you mention it, I did grow some D. nubigenum from seed a year or two ago - but never saw it bloom, and figured it had perished.
