Noted succulent breeder, Attila Kapitany, has crossed a South African and Australian succulent to produce this intergeneric hybrid called Sunburn. It will grow in just about any situation and flowers for most of the year with gold to yellow flowers, and is easy to maintain. Plus it's an infertile hybrid so there's no risk of invasion - an amazing plant!
A well suited complement to Delosperma 'Sunflare'.
