Following the launch of Jewel of the Desert here is 'Wheels of Wonder' - the latest breeding breakthrough from the same Japanese enthusiast! The result of more than a decades painstaking work these new 'Hardy Ice Plants' sparkle like gems all summer long no matter how hot and dry the weather is and are incredibly easy to look after as they are trouble free and fully hardy.
Most people probably have not heard of Delopsperma, but they are close relations of other trailing succulent types like commonly known Mesembryanthemum, and the borderline hardy Lampranthus often seen on dry stone walls in Cornwall and the South West. The new Wheels of Wonder series all have a distinctive white ring around the centre of their large flowers, giving them a completely new look too, sitting tight into their foliage. Although quite small, the flowers smother the established plants all Summer long.
They love being baked warm and dry in our Summer sun, and conversely hate wet feet in Winter. Therefore we suggest growing in pots, in well-drained soil with added grit and sand. They will spread to cover the pots, and trail down over the side. Or they work well in very dry banks and stone wall crevices, as this new series are totally hardy too, and as part of traditional alpine gardens.
having to wait so long for my order & not being told of the delay. also the email I received back after I sent in my query I found rude & not helpful at all.
