Delosperma cooperi ‘Jewel of Desert Moon Stone’


Ice Plant

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.173.270


The hardy Ice Plants are native to South Africa but are amazingly hardy in North America, provided they are grown in the sun in very well-drained soil. This forms a low carpet or mat of succulent, green leaves bearing loads of starry flowers with petals that are pure white surrounding a yellow centre. Part of the new Jewel of Desert series, these should bloom longer than typical ice plants. A great choice for hot, dry areas and excellent in the rock garden or wall and for edging the front of a border. Attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant once established. Where winter drainage is poor, consider growing this as a summer blooming annual. USPP#23491: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
