More about Purple Hardy Ice Plant...
Purple Ice Plant, Delosperma cooperi, is a cold hardy evergreen perennial but acts like it's an annual. How so? Like many flowering annual plants that bloom throughout the season, the Hardy Ice Plant produces flowers from early spring until frost! There just aren't very many hardy perennials with a bloom season this long.
The bright purple quilled flowers are about the size of a quarter and are produced abundantly throughout the warm season, at times almost covering the foliage. This is why we've used it so extensively in patches or as borders throughout our gardens, though rarely use it as a large space groundcover.
Hardy Ice Plant performs best in full sun to partial shade. Because it is a succulent, loose well-drained soils are a must. It hates wet feet!

My product seemed to be a bit tender. It was planted on the day I received it and watered it well. I hope it survives, spreads, and looks beautiful.
