1/2" tall x 8" wide. White Nugget is a color sport of Delosperma basuticum Gold Nugget (also known as D. congestum), discovered in a Denver, CO area nursery in the late 1990s. This species is a true sub-alpine succulent, coming from the high elevations of distant South Africa. In bloom, the large, shiny white flowers sit right on top of the succulent foliage for a couple of weeks in mid-spring. White Nugget appreciates more regular moisture than other South African succulents. Plant it where it receives some afternoon shade, particularly where summer temperatures are hot. This is an evergreen gem for mountain rock gardens. Low fertility, well-drained soil. Cannot tolerate foot traffic. Good for Firescaping. Plant with Aster alpines, Dianthus
