This Panayoti Kelaidis introduction was originally discovered in South Africa's Karroo (Great Desert). The small fleshy green leaves adorn the semi-woody stems which form a tangled mass to 15" tall x 2' wide. The clump is topped, starting in early May, with small purple delosperma-like daisies. There is some reflowering in the summer, but spring is the peak flowering season. A well-drained soil in bright baking sun is best for this easy-to-grow rock garden specimen.
