Delosperma Hot Cakes® 'Fig Fusion' Description

Rich purple blooms will make summer days even sweeter. Hot Cakes Fig Fusion ice plant is easy to grow and enjoy!  

If you've never tried growing a hardy ice plant (Delosperma sp.), now's the time! The unique South African natives grow well even in cold areas, and spend summer covered with purple flowers covering a mat of glistening, succulent foliage. They make an unusual but beautiful choice for a deer resistant groundcover in any sunny, dry spot. Virtually no maintenance is needed to enjoy this show! Hot Cakes delosperma were developed by breeder Chris Hansen, who selected each one for outstanding flowering and a neater, tidier habit than other ice plants on the market. Try it and see for yourself - take your pick of six fabulous colors, and mix or match. You'll be glad you planted Hot Cakes delosperma!

Designing with ice plants

Ice plants get their name from the tiny, glistening, crystal-like glands that cover their succulent leaves. Between this charming feature and their tropical-colored blooms, you'll want to plant them where you can enjoy them. They work nicely in rock gardens, along pathways, bordering walkways or driveways, or in any sunny spot that rarely gets water. Also try mixing them with other hardy succulents in a container.
