From South Africa's Drakensberg Mountains comes the hardiest and cutest of the ice plants, Delosperma basuticum. This charmer makes a tight 1" tall x 8" wide clump of little jellybean-like leaves topped, starting in mid-April (NC) and continuing through May, with 1.5" screaming yellow daisies, each highlighted with a dramatic white center. The flowers of Delosperma basuticum appear to float just atop the foliage. Although the foliage is technically evergreen, don't expect much of a winter show. Thanks to Pennsylvania plantsman, John Lonsdale, for sharing after I lusted over this in his garden.
