DELOSPERMA cooperi ‘Pink Carpet’

Iceplant –

0604 Most of these plants are from South Africa. They’re a tight mat forming groundcover. Thick fleshy shiny green leaves that may be rounded, flattened or angled. Blooms open around midday and close in the evening, only last one day. These plants are heavy blooming, tough succulents. Drought tolerant. Blooms late spring to summer. Deer resistant.

The succulent, needle-like leaves have fluorescent purple up-facing flowers. Hot and sunny conditions keep the flowers coming most of the summer. Although quite hardy, it cannot stand excessive winter moisture, either in the soil or applied from above.
