Delosperma

DELOSPERMA Amazingly drought tolerant these little mesembs will tolerate hot and dry sites that would fry most other plants and still flower like mad. Many are surprisingly cold tolerant although they do tend to melt in wet spring weather, they are easily cut and it is a simple matter to keep a backup plant on a windowsill or cold frame just in case things get too wet. Delosperma will also self-sow in the garden and any surviving scraps quickly grow back to form a good-sized plant in a single season.

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.
