Top Tips

Try combining with other ‘hot’ coloured perennials for a fiery border combination.

Care Guide

  • Plant in full sunlight in well-drained, open soil when all risk of frost has passed.
  • Water the plants immediately after planting, but then let the top inch of soil dry before watering again.
  • Once the Lampranthus plants are growing in the garden they are easy to look after. The fleshy leaves store water, so they only need water in very prolonged dry spells.
  • Although perennial, garden plants are best treated as tender annuals and replaced every year.
  • If growing in a pot, use a cactus and succulent potting mix and water whenever the top layer of soil dries out.
  • Bring containers indoors before the first frost is predicted, and overwinter in a frost-free place
