Delosperma as weeds...


Some forms of Delospermas are simply weedy. They are not as plants particular cold/wet hardy, but their seeds are and they germinate everywhere! One example is Delosperma cooperi. And all its hybrids or forms. The plant shown on the picture may in fact not be the real thing. This one behaves very well.

Other forms grows like maniacs and a seed can turn into a 1 squaremeter of a plant producing a zillion seeds. I even have them germinating and growing, if I led them, in my garden bog. In wet, peathy soil!

Another weed is Delosperma herbeum. Also not really cold hardy, but the seeds are. It does, however, grows the best inside the unheated greenhouse. It likes the heat.

When you grow plants, closely related to each other, often hybrids are produced. This next plant germinated this spring. Not Delosperma herbeum. Not Delosperma floribundum, but something in betwin...



Note the waterfilled leaves. We simply have had too much water this year...
