Its botanical name Delosperma Echinatum means ‘prickly visible seed’ as its seeds are detectable when it fruits.
Native to South Africa, this plant is often found growing at high altitudes so it's no stranger to bit of cold weather. It's very tolerant to neglect and can go a while without being watered.
