Delosperma dyeri is an ice plant that hails from the mountains of South Africa's Eastern Cape Province, but has adapted well to drier parts of the US. The 2" tall x 18" wide mats of fleshy green foliage are blanketed, primarily from April through June (except in excessive heat) with showy coral-red star-shaped flowers. Delosperma dyeri was a 2007 Plant Select winner (Colorado State University/Denver Botanic Gardens). As with most delospermas, well-drained soils are essential to its survival. Ours has thrived in our crevice garden planted in mostly gravel.
