Delosperma congestum


Gold Nugget Ice Plant

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.173.040


The hardy Ice Plants are native to dry areas in South Africa but are amazingly hardy in North America, provided they are grown in very well-drained soil. This species forms a spreading carpet of succulent evergreen leaves, bearing starry yellow flowers for months on end. Leaves turn maroon during winter. Prefers a bit of afternoon shade. Excellent drainage in winter is required or plants may easily rot. Consider growing in a gravel garden, scree or alpine trough. Cuttings are easily rooted in early summer.
