Plant Families / Delosperma - Ice Plants
Delosperma (Ice Plant) is a vigorous, spreading, mat forming perennial forming a stunning carpet of attractive succulent foliage, covered with a profusion of brightly colored flowers from late spring to fall. Evergreen in warm winter areas, the lush foliage of fleshy, medium green leaves, delicately covered with transparent flakes resembling small pieces of ice (hence the common name), adds winter interest to the landscape. The intensity of the flower color combined with the long blooming season and evergreen foliage reinforce the ornamental interest of this perennial plant. An indispensable element of waterwise landscapes.
