A little stunner, with the emphasis not just on the little, though Delosperma Topaz indeed is a low growing fleshy leaved plant that will carpet a dry spot and brighten it up all summer with its vibrant orange flowers that shade inwards to white with a yellow centre. And yes, it is hardy. Sunny spot. Well drained soil. 4 in. 1L Pot.

This was a new colour in this series for us in 2016. It replaced the Orange Wonder (from the Wheels of Wonder series) which we grew in 2015 and, although we liked the colour, we found the habit a little straggly.

If you are wondering why the sun-loving delosperma is called ice plant, it's because they have little hairs on the leaf surface that reflect and refract light so that it seems that they sparkle like ice crystals.

Here is that crazy man again, Peter van Rijssen, wandering about a Dutch glasshouse full of Delosperma Jewel of the Desert plants in fancy dress. You have been warned.

Delosperma Jewel of the Desert Topaz is a hardy evergreen perennial with fleshy leaves and orange flowers with yellow centres throughout summer suitable for sun.
