Delospermas have proven their success on green roofs; they tend to be floriferous and have long bloom cycles. This species has purple flowers that are attractive to pollinators. Flowers open with the sun and close up at night as with all Delosperma. The green foliage typically persists into the Autumn before turning a yellow-green to bronze color for the winter months. Large quantities may require custom growing. Please contact office for lead times.
