Additional Information About Delosperma Jewel of the Desert Garnet - Ice Plant

Garnet Ice Plant is a moderate growing groundcover plant, perennial plant and succulent plant that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 5A through 11. It matures to an average height of 1 inch to 1 foot and an average width of 1 foot to 2 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun and grows best when planted in sand, loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained. In the summer and fall Garnet Ice Plant produces pink and red flowers. The foliage is medium green in color. It attracts butterflies and visual attention and is resistant to deer, drought, insects, diseases and heat.

Garnet Ice Plant can be useful in the landscape in mass plantings, in containers or planters, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas, as a groundcover, in hanging baskets, in landscape beds or islands, for erosion control or in small groupings and also in rock or xeriscape gardens, butterfly gardens or perennial gardens.


More About Garnet Ice Plant...

Delosperma Jewel of the Desert ‘Garnet’ is dwarf hybrid Ice Plant with a profusion of eye catching, dime-sized flowers of scarlet and lavender. An ever-blooming variety, the plant grows as a tight mound of evergreen leaves and makes a nice, small-scale groundcover. Use ‘Garnet’ in the rock garden where it can grow comfortably with other small plants.

This plant gets it's name because the  foliage is cold to the touch.

Delosperma is perfect as a groundcover or border in garden beds, on slopes, and rock gardens combined with other plants that have low water needs. It is perfect for the xeriscape. It is also suitable for container gardening where it makes a colorful soil cover and will spill over the edges of pots. If planted in container use lots of sand and small gravel to insure good drainage.

Being an exceptionally drought tolerant plant when established, Ice Plant is easy to grow in any well drained soil and full sun to part shade. Good drainage is essential. Constantly soggy or wet soils can cause roots and plants to rot. Avoid overwatering. Young plants will require occasional watering during dry spells of summer.
