Fire Spinner

Delosperma ‘Fire Spinner’ surprised me today.

It burst into flames in the bright spring sunshine.

This variety of ice plant loves to nestle against rocks and creep into crevices.

It looks perfectly happy along the stone wall.

Two Tiny Treasures

I love tiny plants.  They are perfect for planting in troughs and my fairy garden.

Here are two of my favorites.

Ledebouria cooperi  ‘Jessop’ has tiny bulbs.

The leaves have copper stripes.  Its blooms are a lovely lavender. Its buds look like grape clusters.

The other little lovely is a Delosperma/Ice Plant named ‘Fire Spinner.’

It is just starting to bloom. Soon this patch will be glowing in the sun.

It really does look like it is on fire.

Both of these plants are easy to grow.  I have planted them in numerous places in my gardens. They like sun and well-drained soil.   All are growing happily.
