Very nice selection the only one in this group that I have grown is Delosperma floribundum. It seems to be hardy for two to three years then I lose the older plants. I always keep a couple on young ones on hand as replacements.
I like the 'Silverhill' have you patented it?  Is it available in the U.S.?

No, patentating plants in the EU is very expensive. I breed them just for fun. But odd to see my own plants being sold on ebay? But at least the naming is respected. No, they are not available in the US. Maybe its time they travel over there? I also still need some Lavender Ice, dyeri and a few other nice ones you guys have...

What kind of room does it need for roots? I'd love to grow it in a bowl to be brought in for the winter. I'm sure it would die if I put it in the ground.

I would think it would do fine in a pot. But I'd give put it in a chilly spot and do not starve it of moisture.

Here is some good information about it.

Here are some newly acquired mesembs. All have at least one winter outside though. All labels lost (or rather I  don't like labels in the beds here at my summerhouse!!) as I try to make it natural looking. (Some plants are from you, Martin, thanks ;) )
