Delosperma floribundum – Upright Ice Plant


Out of stock


This ice plant features lilac to purple flowers with white centers. It is fairly upright compared to other ice plants, forming semi-woody stems growing to about 6 inches in height. The upright habit and darker flowers add a nice contrast when planted with other hardy ice plants.

Hardy ice plants (Delosperma sp.) are low-growing succulents native to the alpine regions of southern Africa. While sporting attractive groundcover foliage, they are best known for their multitude of aster-like blooms. Ice plants work great in containers and planters, either by themselves or mixed with other plants. They add excellent low-growing color and texture planted in a rock garden, draping down a retaining wall, or planted anywhere a cold and drought tolerant ground cover or trailing plant is needed. They can also be used as permanent additions to hanging baskets.
