Didelta carnosa

Didelta carnosa (Didelta carnosa)

Got to try out, but the season was too short to get it into bloom. It gets nice bright yellow daisy shape flowers in a habit somewhat like asters. Still it as a lovely silver plant in a concrete container flanking the steps.

A nice looking plant: a new one to me.

Thank you! :-) The cold stole across before I could take it up and bring it in. That was the plan anyway. This is another of the South African wildflowers and wont last through even a few frosts. I will try again if I can find it again. Here is a link to look at the plant flowering, it really stole my attention. Anything that blooms beyond 4 months from sprout have too long a season and will never show a flower up here. Those on the line I have forced starting inside and pushing with blooming fertilizer for the season. Works on some things.

Wow, that is a big link, but lovely pic. :-)

Eek! I was just looking into it and seems to be rather rare and no longer in production many places! I am kicking myself for not saving this one over! Kick Kick Kick! :-)
