Little yellow flowers

They don't come much littler than this. I probably post pictures of this Portulaca every year, but here it is again.

This Delosperma is a hybrid produced by Gordon Rowley and grown in his garden. It is certainly resilient to the weather but still doesn't thrive in my garden.

Delosperma nubigenum has slightly bigger flowers, slightly fewer of them.

This flower isn't really little at all. The aptly named Copiapoa grandiflora.

Are those hypertufa containers in the photo of the second Delosperma? Been considering making something like that for some Delosperma hybrids I've grown from seed.

Yes, that's right. Note sure they're really the best thing for Delospermas because they're not so keen on limestone, but these are doing OK.

Good to know, thank you - might try a custom made one and seal the inside to stop the lime leaching out!
