The bright neon like colours of these daisies make every garden brighter. The ground hugging plants will spread about 4 inches then be covered in masses of flowers that close up slightly in the late afternoon.
- The leaves are narrow fleshy and have a crystaline texture that lead to another common name Ice plant.
- They are easy to grow as half hardy annuals from their very fine seed with a bit of warmth in April
- Self colours are now available in orange and yellow but the multi-coloured mixes are still the most common
- The genera of Mesembryanthemaceae embrace a wide range of succulent plants including Dorotheanus, Phyllobolus, Dactylopsis, Hereroa Psammophora, Lithops and Lapidaria
Grow from the fine gritty seed. Space the seed well. Plant in bold blocks for the best colour impact.
