Mesa Verde® Ice Plant
Delosperma hybrid 'Kelaidis' PP #13,876
|Description||A stunning display of salmon pink flowers against succulent, gray-green foliage from late spring until the first frost arrives. This award winning, vigorous, compact selection is hardy to 7,000 ft. An exceptional plant for poor, dry soils. Useful in rock gardens, as groundcover, or at border edges. Spreads quickly but not aggressively. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Once established, water if very dry.|
|Blooms||Late Spring through Fall|
|Mature Size||Fast growing; reaches 3 to 6 in. tall, spreading 12 to 24 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. Feed sparingly in spring.|
|Lore||This selection is a 2002 Plant Select® winner. Plant Select® is a collaboration of Colorado State University, Denver Bonanic Gardens, and the green industry, helping gardeners and horticultural professionals transform the American landscape to a vibrancy inspired by our western regional landscape.|
