Delosperma

Wheels of Wonder Orange

Delosperma, commonly called "Ice Plant" is a great xeroscape, or low water user for rocky, dry landscapes. The evergreen foliage makes a great ground cover, softening edges quickly. The real bonus is the brightly colored Citrus Orange blooms with yellow centers.

Use in containers or rock gardens.
