I had collected the succulents which do not need watering many times and can go on a trip fourteen years. But almost all succulents grow slowly, and there are not the succulents which have hot and cold tolerant and flowering beauty long time in all over the world. I had managed the roof garden company at the time in Japan, but i could not plant desum which were planted in Europe, because the sedum grew slowly and did not flower long time in Japan. So i have started the breeding of Delosperma. I have bred Delosperma little by little, and completed the first variety seven years ago. The variety won a prize of JFS in Japan.
But Japan has the four seasons, so i could not go ahead with my breeding work hurry. So i have moved to Ecuador and established the breeding company FLORSAIKA CIA. LTDA. 4 years ago. I proceeded the breeding work drastically here and i completed the new varieties of Delosperma.
