DELOSPERMA (Hardy Ice Plant) Zone 6 The hardy Ice Plants are native to dry areas in South Africa but are amazingly hardy in North America, provided they are grown in very well-drained soil. Makes an excellent groundcover for hot, dry slopes, and will tolerate poor sandy soil. Drought tolerant.
Cooperi Succulent, needle-like leaves studded with fluorescent 2” wide daisy pink flowers. Good red fall colour. Pink Green July-August 4-6” high 12” spread Nickel-sized blossoms are apricot to bright orange with a ring of hot pink to magenta color surrounding the white eye. They are produced prolifically, blanketing the foliage from late spring through early summer and then often reblooming sporadically throughout the summer months.
Fire Spinner Forms a low carpet or mat of succulent, apple-green leaves, bearing loads of starry flowers with petals that are bright apricot around the perimeter with a darker halo effect, vibrant pink at the base and a white eye. Apricot/Pink Green July-August 4-6” high 12” spread FIRE SPINNER® is a weed suppressing groundcover that typically spreads 18-24” wide in two years. Its succulent, apple green foliage is evergreen and takes on bronze tones in winter.
Like all Delospermas, this one is also highly heat and drought tolerant, making it a good choice for waterwise landscapes. It thrives in rock gardens, on slopes, in containers, and in the landscape.
