Delosperma-Hardy Ice Plant

Propagating the Hardy Ice Plant is best done in the spring by transplanting the rhizomes and it is one perennial that will do well in a sandy and well drained soil in full sun in any range of pH, but water well after transplanting. Depending on the zone, it can be evergreen, semi or deciduous and may die if the temperature goes below zero, and deer have a tendency to munch on the plant since it is a succulent. It grows to a height of 2" and does not want to be walked on. It blooms from late spring until frost and colors vary depending on the variety which can be yellow, purple, pink or white.
