(aka: Delosperma P0015 - an illegitimate cultivar name) It's a truly rare occasion when a new plant gets you so excited that you jump out of your chair and dance around like an NFL receiver scoring his first touchdown. Well, such a plant is Delosperma 'Fire Spinner'. This amazing, still unnamed delosperma species was discovered in the wilds of South Africa's East Cape at 6,000'+ near Tarkastad and brought to this country thanks to our friend and delosperma guru Panayoti Kelaidis of the Denver Botanic Garden. The groundcover mats of fleshy evergreen foliage spread to 2' in 2 years and are topped much of late spring and into early summer with eye-like upturned flowers composed of bright orange petals that morph to magenta at the base with a central white eye highlight...this is neon-quality tacky on steroids. You're sure to brighten up your rock garden with this 2012 Plant Select Winner. If you live in a HOA ruled neighborhood, good luck getting approval to plant Delosperma 'Fire Spinner'.
