Delosperma, or ice plant, is another newly popular perennial- and a unique one for Canada! It is a succulent-type plant, with thick, fleshy foliage, and tall shoots of spiky, colourful flowers. They will undoubtedly be the envy of your neighbourhood, as they’ll catch the eye amongst all the average perennials of your community! They will create a thick ground cover as they grow, and will be an attractive carpet for your garden.
Their care is quite simple. They adore full sun, which is simply a must for these plants. They also enjoy very dry soil, even soil that is sandy. They are well suited for the overly-sunny parts of your garden that scorches any other plant! They are very cold hardy.
