Purple flowers produced on vigorous growth.
Classic Delosperma with vigorous growth and producing abundance of flowers. This is a great plant for front of borders, alpine rock gardens and containers alike. Its deep green foliage is quick to spread and so if you are after flowering ground cover that is moderately drought tolerant this is your plant.
Not much needed to do here. If the plant has reached the size you want it to, then trim back lightly to the shape you want. The flowers will disappear naturally when they have finished.
