Jewel of Desert Ruby Ice Plant
Delosperma cooperi 'Jewel of Desert Ruby' PP #23,453
|Description||As long as the sun is out, this sturdy little evergreen perennial will shine! Bright, multi-colored flowers are fringed with ruby red tips. Forms a dense, weed-smothering mat, perfect as a groundcover or accent for rock gardens and containers. Hardy and adaptable, yet non-invasive.|
|Watering||Once established, water if very dry.|
|Blooms||Summer to Fall|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; forms a tight mat, 4 to 6 in. tall, 15 to 20 in. wide.|
|Care||Thrives in average to lean, well-drained soils; best in drier, less humid climates. Water regularly in first growing season; once established reduce frequency. Diminish watering in the fall to allow hardening off in cold winter zones; in warmer winter areas irrigate occasionally, in absence of rainfall. Fertilize sparingly in spring.|
|Lore||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.|
