Common Name: Ice Plant Family: Aizoaceae (The Carpet Weed Family)

Delosperma  'Fire Spinner'
Zoom In Photo:

This shockingly fabulous colour combination has firey orange petals morphing into hot magenta and then cooling down into icy white punctuated by the yellow stamens all against apple green foliage. Ice plants are long-blooming and carefree succulent mat-forming perennials similar to sedums that thrive in heat, drought and nearly any well-drained soil. Very hardy but should be protected from winter wet either with very well drained soil or in the rainshadow of a house or other structure. Deer resistant.
