Iceplant is a beautiful rock garden perennial from South Africa. Delosperma cooperi is a hardy species ideal for rockeries. It grows pretty fast covering grounds in almost no time. It has rich green, thick or almost needle-like, evergreen, water-absorbing foliage above which open daisy-like flowers.

Jewel of Desert is a fantastic iceplant series with various colours including white, yellow, several shades of orange, pink and red. Flowers are 2-4 cm across, and bloom continuously for 5 months! From late May until early autumn.

Iceplant loves sunny and dry locations, excess watering could kill this plant. It is best for rockeries with plenty of gritty material, in garden beds and along pavements make sure the soil is sharply drained so that the plant never stands in water. It is said to be hardy, at least down to -25°C (USDA zone 6), but stronger hardiness is expected under ideal growing conditions.
