40 years ago, almost the only plants from South Africa grown in North American gardens that experienced subzero cold were a few hybrids. It was not thought that there would be many cold hardy plants coming from such a mild region.

We more or less accidentally obtained Delosperma nubigenum in 1980; since that time over 100 species of mesembs have successfully overwintered in Colorado—and there are now people in America, Japan and Europe hybridizing and developing new cultivars not just of Delosperma but many other species of Mesembryanthemum.
