We've grown several delosperma species through the years, starting with the hardiest one, D. cooperi. Most of those were grown from seed, and are perfectly nice. However, nurseries and other retailers frequently tempt me with other ice plants, some with fancy names, others nameless in big-box stores. Our most recent entry was of the nameless variety, but it looks to be a nice one. It found a place in our new rock garden, where we hope it will weather the heat, humidity, and spring downpours.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
