Delosperma sutherlandii is a slow-growing, 3" tall x 10" wide, compact ice plant that hails from South Africa (KwaZulu-Natal to Gauteng). Delosperma sutherlandii has large purple flowers with white eyeballs, and yellow pupils. For us, it flowers from late spring into mid-summer. While all delospermas are susceptible to overwatering, Delosperma sutherlandii is particularly susceptible, so in regions with regular rainfalls, we recommend planting this in a crevice or other area where it can get at least 3-4 hours of sun, but where rain is minimized.
