Delosperma

I'm just going to say up-front that the genus delosperma is huge and there are lots of different species that look very similar, so I wouldn't be shocked if some of ours are misidentified. We try out best. It you are an expert, let us know what we got wrong. Aside from the taxonomic difficulties, I love 'em. I wouldn't mind a little more hardiness, but several of the species are reliable for us, and we're always trying new ones. They do root easily from cuttings, so if you are worried about overwintering, it never hurts to root some in a sunny windowsill so you have a backup if they freeze.

Delosperma dyeri (Red Mountain)

Delosperma dyeri (Red Mountain)

A very pretty species of delosperma being marketed under the name 'Red Mountain' Forms the usual low flat mat of succulent leaves, but the bright red flowers are a nice change from the usual delosperma magenta. One of those hardy in Denver Zone 5 plants that will probably require perfect drainage to actually be hardy in our rather soggier version of a zone 5 winter. Pretty enough, however, that I'd be willing to overwinter some on a windowsill if I needed to. Zone 5-7, if kept dry enough.

Delosperma congestum 'Gold Nugget'

Delosperma congestum 'Gold Nugget'

One of the very few actually hardy ice plants for us, if it has perfect winter drainage. Remember, for a lot of these succulents, it isn't the cold that kills them as much as the wet. The succulent foliage forms a tight, dense little mat almost flat to the ground, topped with quite lovely intense yellow flowers that sit right on top of the foliage. Beautiful in a rock garden or trough, great to combine with hardy cacti for a desert look. Zone 5 Joseph
