Product information "Delosperma congestum"

This yellow flowering ice plant is a small, unique perennial that is not found in every garden. It has cushion-like growth and soon forms dense, flat tuffs and carpets. The bright golden yellow flowers appear densely above succulent leaves from June until late into August. It is a very floriferous variety that prefers fully sunny locations with well-drained, rather poor soil. Winter waterlogging should be avoided in any case. Delosperma congestum can be used in sunny rock gardens, stone enclosures, on wall crowns or in containers, in conjunction with other drought-loving plants. Pinching the faded flowers promotes a second bloom. Originally, Delosperma congestum is native to South Africa, which is unfortunately accompanied by only a slight hardiness. Delosperma congestum is, however, very frost-resistant and can withstand not too hard winters in good locations.
