Delosperma ‘Fire Spinner’® is an evergreen ground cover that flowers in late spring. Prepare a wide hole and loosen the soil with a fork. Clay soil can be improved with some sharp sand, although with good drainage it will also thrive in poor soil. Plant the Delosperma ‘Fire Spinner’® at the correct depth – top of the root ball should be just below ground level. Fill the hole with soil, heel well in and water immediately.
Delosperma will thrive in a spot in full sun or part shade in a fairly dry, permeable soil. This lovely plant will also flourish in a planter filled with sandy soil.
