A large family of succulent, drought-tolerant plants with splendidly showy flowers, ice plants are at home tumbling over rock walls or edging container gardens. Delosperma nubigenum is the hardiest ice plant, with succulent, mat-forming, weed supressing rich green foliage blanketed in bright yellow daisy-like flowers in early summer. Plant in full sun in sharply draining soil and water infrequently for best summer performance. Hardy as far north as Zone 5.
