Thanks Lynn. Lost the Delo. davyi and haven't seen much of it for sale. Now's probably not a good time for me to buy as I have a lot of plants designated for containers to comb thru. I do really like the plum color of the davyi foliage...

I lost my davyi awhile back. It is one of my favorites. It does go winter dormant. The color changes in the leaves are spectacular. It only blooms in the spring, so good thing the leaves are interesting throughout the growing season.

I bought the Delo. davyi because I had seen Lynn's photo of it and after researching it I also found that it is a smaller type of ice plant than the others. It would be ideal for those wanting to pair it with other plants in a smaller space.

I spotted these babies marked down to €2 in the bargain department of B&Q and couldn't resist giving them a new home. They'll come in handy when I try making a semp ball in the summer.

Hurray! You are going to be having some fun Paddi.

Yes, D. davyi is slow growing and very low to the ground. Would work wonderful in a miniature container planting. Or all by itself is some sweet little container.

Not to be outdone by everybody here Paddy goes out and buys some Delos as well. One is a noid so we'll see how it turns out in due course. They're from the bargain basket too, €1 each.

Paddy, If you ever have any lull time in your life, here's a thread that got started for our love of Delosperma...

Thank you for the link Bev. I split this thread into another delosperma thread. We can talk delos until the cows come home.

Paddy, you D. cooperi will bloom heavily the entire growing season. It is an aggressive grower for me, just love it. Nice big blooms.

Wasn't that a great idea for Lynn to have put the ever impressive Delosperma cooperii at the ends of her bed???? Whistling

My little Delosperma pruinosum is flowering! Got it as a cutting in late November. Love these plants.

Not prickly at all. They are soft. I love this little plant so much. So delicate and sparkly like a little universe if you look closely.

I though it was D. pruinosum. Are they the same?
