    No, I haven’t seen those.  You’ll have to do another picture when it opens fully.

    Ili yes I have grown this got seed from a person that goes to southAfrica  from a botanical garden at least once a year that is where most of all the delospermas originated from.  It has pretty flowers and nice fruit that stays on for a long time. I treat it like a house plant here not hardy at all. I lost mine about two years ago one winter by my lack of watering it and to close to a draft.

    That is very pretty, Ili, but I do not need any more plants….especially tropicals to over winter.  Charlene

    Thank you all….yes, I learned it is from S.Africa and grows into a bush/tree if you let them…in containers you can be kept at a reasonable size..DH has a bad back and it is not willing to move any more pots….most of mine are now on wheels but still so heavy even to push them around… maybe even I could bring it into the kitchen by the sliding door, that’s  looking more like a jungle right now…
