Plant of the Week: Delosperma Fire Spinner
“Delosperma Fire Spinner is a rock garden groundcover perfect for that sun-baked hot spot with good drainage. Native to South Africa, this psychedelic doozy features a carpet of upturned flowers composed of neon orange petals that morph to magenta with a central white eye. Almost too colorful to be real.” – Ciscoe Morris
