  • Care
    Care Information
    Best in full sun. Provide well drained soil and water regularly during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Once established, water deeply and infrequently during summer months.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).

  • History & Lore
    Exhibiting a dramatic color breakthrough for the hardy ice plants, this unique cultivar traces its ancestry to the Eastern Cape of South Africa. This plant Select® winner was selected for outstanding garden performance throughout the high plains and inter-mountain areas of the Rocky Mountain region.
    Plant Select® is a collaboration of Colorado State University, Denver Botanic Gardens, and the green industry, helping gardeners and horticultural professionals transform the American landscape to a vibrancy inspired by our western regional landscape. Unlike species of iceplants (such as Carpobrutus edulis) which have been identified as invasive in some states, Delosperma cooperi is a beautiful, non-invasive alternative.
