‘Red Mountain Flame’

Such a carefree, super showy succulent ground cover! This highly improved award winning variety of ice plant can transform even the ugliest sidewalk strip into a dramatic blanket of flaming red gorgeousness! Masses, and I mean tons, of 2” daisy-esque, intense scarlet red flowers with fanciful magenta and white circles around the yellow stamen bloom from Spring-Fall atop a 2” high mat of succulent ever-gray-green weed suppressing foliage. Drought tolerant once established and virtually maintenance free, it can take heat, cold, salt spray, and attracts butterflies and bees! Provide well-drained soil (a must!) and low water. It doesn’t require rich soil, but a nice dose of compost will give it a boost. Spreads to about 15-20” so pick up enough to fill in your space accordingly. Or mix it up with 2 or 3 chalky silver-fingered Cotyledon orbiculata ‘Flavida’ plants thrown in... then you can add hummingbirds to the list of pollinators flocking to your garden!
