Description

Hardy ice plants (Delosperma sp.) are low-growing succulents native to the alpine regions of southern Africa. While sporting attractive heat, cold, and drought-tolerant groundcover foliage, ice plants are best known for their multitude of aster-like blooms.

‘Blut’ features intense magenta-red blooms with low-growing, thick succulent foliage forming an attractive clump or mat. This variety was discovered by horticulturist Kelly Grummons growing as a volunteer seedling in a gravel driveway near Denver, Colorado.

Ice plants work great in containers and planters, either by themselves or mixed with other plants. They add excellent low-growing color and texture planted in a rock garden, draping down a retaining wall, or planted anywhere a cold and drought tolerant ground cover or trailing plant is needed. They can also be used as permanent additions to hanging baskets.

This plant is sold in a square 2-inch pot.
