ok, so what i have then are likely both nubi/hybrids thereof..
last year wrightmans alpines in ontario was listing a delo (i forget whether they had a name) with pale pink flowers--this was the most desirable hardy sp i've seen--nicer to me(florally) than the bright yellows or purply colours; i've seen whites also in the hardy lists..hope to get both of those at some time, but havent seen seed..

That's a pretty convincing D. aberdeenense.  Hardy in my garden, forms a nice tight clump up to about a foot across.  Completely covered in purple flowers in a good year.

Tony, here is a (not too good) picture of D. aberdeenense in my collection.
I think that we both have the true plant.

I'm envious. I'm a big fan of mesembs and have tried several hardy delosperma outside. The slugs & snails fight over them and even ignore such prime mollusc food as physoplexis on their way to the delosperma. My only bedraggled survivor is on our green roof but I'm pretty sure that one day a flying ninja snail will find it! Troughs? Nope, tried that. Crevice garden? Nope, food supply AND a lot of hiding places meant the little slugs had a feast. They did waver between delosperma and Talinum 'Zoe' but went for the delosperma first, then ate the Talinum for pudding.

Wonder about the enormous interest in more or less hardy delospermas.I already tried various species in our
climate and noticed,that a protection against winter rain is quite useful.
The names of the plants are these under which they were obtained, I know quite well about the confusion
in this beautiful genus.
D.congestum album or D.'White Nugget' is very hardy and vigorous.
D.cooperi J.Halda form was introduced by the Czech plantsman, hardy,vigorous and more compact as the
usual form.The flowering period also lasts  unusually long.
D.sutherlandii is not so vigorous like the other species, but one of the most beautiful in my taste.
D.spec. was collected in the Drakensberge Mts. by Czech gardeners about 2 years ago, I have no expeience
about it.
The other 2 species did not survive our last winter, so they were not replaced.

Now those really are tempting. No David, not in your climate, move on to something else. :-[
