Low growing shrubby succulent with conspicuously hairy leaves and small yellow flowers.
The name Delosperma is derived from the greek for visible seed, in allusion to the fact that the capsules have no covering membranes so the seeds are exposed when the capsules are open.
The plant is from the mesemb family and is native to Southern Africa.
Delosperma echinatum. Feature plant at Towerkop Nursery.
