The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Cultivation and propagation: Delosperma echinatum is one of the more easily cultivated succulent species. It is also surprisingly hardy outdoors. It's tolerant of wet and cold and can tolerate less than perfect drainage, but it will suffer under prolonged water stagnation, and thus prefers well drained soils, or even rocky terrain. Excellent potted plant.

Growth rate: It grows fast, needs to be contained or it becomes invasive, and also likes to self-seed everywhere. If not checked it could take over entire areas of garden, and even escape into the wild.

Watering: Water moderately from early spring to the end of autumn (plants should be allowed to dry in-between waterings). Disliking overly wet conditions, it is best to also cover it with an anchored sheet of plastic during the winter if climate is particularly wet and cold. During wet seasons allow air circulation.

Exposure: It need full sun to light shade. In full sun it is more compact than in shade.

Hardiness: It is tolerant of both heat and cold and is hardy from zones 7 through 10.

This is my first order with Planet Desert. I am very impressed with how my plants arrived. They were undamaged, little to no soil and top dressing loss. They are so healthy, they look like the pictures! I am so excited to order again!!!
