Lovely succulent plant with small leaves and masses of pink to red flowers, coming out in late spring to mid summer. Grows to a height of about 50cm and very effective in a rockery or in pots in a sunny place. Plants trail over walls.
Lampranthus is one of the plants that make up the stunning spring display of flowers in the Cape Floral Kingdom in South Africa. Plants prefer sunny and well drained conditions. This plant does not like hard frosts and can only tolerate temperatures to -5 to -7°C, needing protection or moving indoors in cold weather. They survive outdoors in warmer UK gardens once they form woody stems, which takes about two years.
