Delosperma nubigenum
"Hardy Iceplant"

Delosperma nubigenum "Hardy Iceplant" Delosperma nubigenum "Hardy Iceplant"

In my opinion, just THE BEST drought tolerant & deer resistant groundcover you can grow! Spreading into the densest, flattest bright emerald green mat to at least 2’ across, it's fantastic for carpeting a rock garden & for trailing (or rather draping) over the edge of a raised bed or rock border. AND it's EVERGREEN & hardy too!  It can take your footprints as well when working in your garden, tho I wouldn’t overdo it. Sparkly, 1” bright lemon yellow ice plant-like blooms appear in the Spring to cheer things up even more. Looks great alternated along a border edge with Delosperma sutherlandii (simultaneous pink bloom) & the later-blooming pink Delosperma lavisiae. Feed once a year for super appearance.
