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 orange around the perimeter, white on the inside. In between is a pink halo, all off-setting 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#23492: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
