Delosperma (Hardy Ice Plant)
The ice plant is not called an ice plant because it is cold hardy, but rather because the flowers and leaves seem to shimmer as though covered in frost or ice crystals. Delosperma has attractive, green, needlelike succulent foliage. Generally low-growing and very drought resistant. Plants require well-drained soil and full sun. Use near the front of the border or in rock gardens.
This selection of Delosperma forms a low carpet or mat of succulent, evergreen leaves, bearing loads of small starry burnished-red flowers from late spring through fall. A great choice for hot, dry areas. Excellent as a groundcover.
