Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Hardy Ice plants are ideal for creating a carpet of dense, evergreen ground cover in hot, dry areas, thriving in poor soils where few other plants survive. Delosperma cooperi produces masses of sparkling, violet-purple flowers throughout summer  above creeping mats of cylindrical, succulent foliage. Perfect for gravel gardens, rockeries and low maintenance containers. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Delosperma thrives in poor sandy, sharply drained soil, in a sunny, sheltered position. Add plenty of sharp grit to the soil prior to planting in order to improve drainage and prevent the roots from rotting.
Delosperma requires little maintenance. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings and feed every 3 weeks whilst in active growth.
