FIG MARIGOLD

Family AIZOACEAE
Mesembryanthemum species
Annual

Colourful half-hardy succulents of South African origin and admirable for dry and sun-baked soils.

Mesembryanthemum criniflorum, growing four inches tall, has succulent leaves, about three inches long, widening from a narrow base, with a spreading habit well adapted to covering dry walls, and flowers of daisy-like form in brilliant shades of pink, red, white, yellow and orange.
Mesembryanthemum pyropaeum (syn. tricolor) is of similar habit with long, fleshy leaves, up to three inches long, and many flowers, up to one and a half inches across, of white, pink, purple or rose, each with dark centres.
Of a hardier nature is the Ice Plant (Mesembryanthemum crystallinum), with fleshy stems and of a spreading habit, comprising six-inch oval, pointed leaves and many small flowers of white or rose-pink shades; a useful wall or edging plant.

Except in the mildest climates it is wisest to sow a few seeds in small pots under glass in March, grow on under protection and plant out direct from the pots into a well-drained soil that enjoys full sun in June.

Propagation is from seed.

The flowering season is from midsummer until frost.
