More About Topaz Ice Plant...

Delosperma Jewel of the Desert ‘Topaz’ is dwarf hybrid Ice Plant with a profusion of eye catching, dime-sized bright orange flowers with white eyes. An ever-blooming variety, the plant grows as a tight mound of evergreen leaves and makes a nice, small-scale groundcover.

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.
