Baby Sun Roses for 2009-2010! Anyone?

Watseka, IL(Zone 5a)

I just tried these for the first time this year and they do very well.

Right now I am pruning my hanging baskets of them and I will have lots of cuttings to offer.. but get them quick! Otherwise its the compost heap!

D-mail me for details...

So, is anyone else doing them and do they have any other color besides the deep pink? I heard they came in yellow.. is their other colors of them?

crasulady, thats neat, I heard they came in yellow!

I like this plant! It multiplies fast and makes great baskets!

I do hope they will winter over inside my home. My GH turns into a storage shed in the winter asit has no heat and my house is alwasy too dry and I end up killing a lot of plants here but I try every fall like a fool!

Maybe this year I will have some luck.. I got so many plants in the house I can almost feel the humidity from them....otherwise the house is too dry and I have been know to murder a cactus!

But now you got me hunting for white as well as the yellow!

cjcjmass, you have I was telling you, I put about 8 cuttings into a hanging basket and that will fill the basket in no time. The cuttings root in 2-3 weeks. I dip them in rooting hormone,then poke them right into the basket and whalah!

I just googled them and according to what I read, they are supposed to be good house plants. I'd like a few cuttings if you could, please. I'll D-mail you. Thanks!


Watseka, IL(Zone 5a)

Ok, guys, I got several requests, thanks! They will be in the mail.

When I get the next lot of cuttings, I will see what I can do then too!

Be sure too to let me know what it is you have to trade. I will go postage instead of plants or seed.

We are talking about Delosperma, the Ice Plant? Or is this another? Flower seems to be similar.

I think it might be Aptenia. They also come in a light red and yellow. Beautiful plant for hanging pots and for covering. Colleen

Definitely not an ice plant.

north coast nsw, Australia

its a Mesembryanthemum im sure and they come in alot of colours and different sized flowers and leaves. All shaded of pink-red to yellow-orange, white. Usually a ground cover and it's a succulent so they don't need alot of water.

Sharon, do you have the website to back up the name?

barmera, Australia

Have a look in Plantfiles Blossom. It looks like they've lumped Aptenia and Mesems in together. Colleen

Well, lets link it here!

Sun Lakes, AZ(Zone 9a)

Aptenia roots and grows very easily as others have said. When I take cuttings I always put a group in water and they thrive there also. They root in the water and, if you don't leave them in water for too long, you can transfer to soil. I love their apple green color in a pretty vase.

Thanks Sharon I don't know how to put up links. Colleen

Rooting hormone.. dip and plant! Roots 2-3 weeks! No fuss no muss!

Thanks Sharon for the link... you have mail!

I still have some cuttings left.. so if anyone has a trade or can do postage.. Just d-mail me and will go from there!

Ok, Cuttings are gone for now, but I just got in a new varigated baby sun rose! WHooooWhoo!

The other day I was at Leos and she gave me a cutting of her momma. I would have bought the momma, but it was too pricey.

Then I get home and had regrets! Thought to myself, oh man, would if it did not get growing for me. Well, I always had luck with the solid green so mch that last year I wa able to make 21 hanging baskets from the cuttings I received from DIRTYGIRL71...

Today I when back to Leo, gave her a bunch of cuttings off the solid green, got a great price on the momma and now I have her home!

Newfield, NY

I too am interested in cuttings, but not right now. My life is WAY too full for now. I'm hoping next summer will be just a little less crazy. I LOVE anything variegated. To me it just adds character to the leaves. What color are the flowers on this variegated sun rose?


Watseka, IL(Zone 5a)

HI dori, I have some folks ahead of you that emailed me. I will not be mailing any plants now that we have snow on the ground so will have to wait until spring. I will put you on my list. But right now cannnot even phathom a date of getting together so patience is in order here thanx!
