This hybrid Delosperma has brilliant orange-scarlet flowers with a magenta eye. Blooms in late spring, with some sporadic rebloom with summer rain.

Foliage is fire-resistant.

Requires good drainage. Longer-lived on lean soils.

A Plant Select award winner.

Hybrids rarely come true from seed. This cultivar is propagated by rooting cuttings.

This cultivar's discoverer, David Salman, does not recommend it for Zones colder than Z6.
