Lampranthus sp.
‘Pink Kaboom’

Lampranthus sp.‘Pink Kaboom’ 

BIG FABOOSH BLOOM, ZERO MAINTENANCE kiddos! Our dear propagator Anni Jensen planted a mysterious little start of this plant in our parking lot, which has the worst hard-pan clay soil you can imagine and we never watered it. Quickly, it grew into a dense rounded 2’ high & 3’ wide succulent leaved mound & in Spring, exploded into this astounding mass of blindingly brightest pink daisies. Thrill the neighbors, but hand out sunglasses! Though we didn’t, I would water it a bit till established. . Plant with something extremely orange for just the right effect – Ursinia anthemoides should do just fine. Deer resistant and drought tolerant!
