I'm not sure who is moderating the Delosperma part of the database?
I think I found an incorrect entry, but not sure which one it should be moved to?
Delosperma cooperi doesn't have a white eye, it should be a solid purple.

Why don't you contact Bsavage and ask whether she may have misidentified her plant? If she doesn't reply, you can always propose that the photo be moved to the general Delosperma entry.

Delosperma 'Rise and Shine'

Be sure to enter just the plant ID# (536041) as the entry to which you want the photo to be moved. If you type Delosperma in that space, the system will offer you a zillion different options.

I think the purple with white eye looks like delosperma Stardust.

I gave her a link to D. 'Starburst' for a comparison, I'll send her a link for D. 'Stardust' also. Thank you Karen.

Thumbs up Thumbs up Dave, one of the red banners echoing Zuzu's advice might be nice for a plant move proposal/search.
