  • Well drained soil is a must; dry, sandy, or gravelly soils are no problem at all!
  • Avoid cold, wet conditions and heavy soil
  • Once established, will rarely need watering
  • Not bothered by insects, pests, or diseases
  • Zero maintenance needed - they don't even need to be cut back

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.
