Delosperma Jewel of the Desert Moonstone Description

 Delosperma  Jewel of Desert Series represents a new generation of Ice Plant or Delosperma that will bloom continuously from late spring thru frost.

A drought tolerant groundcover that doesn't need pampering!  You can put away the watering can since this sun perennial thrives with little water or care.

Jewel of Desert Series are notable for the intensity of their flower color and ability to withstand the toughest environments and still sparkle like a jewel.

Delosperma forms a low growing 4-6" mound of spreading evergreen, succulent, jellybean type leaves. With their cascading effect, they are excellent in rock gardens, poor sandy or gravelly soil, container gardening or super tough hot spots where nothing else will grow. They grow happily given sharp drainage, little fertilizer, little water and full sun.

In late spring, masses of white daisy-like blooms shimmer brightly in heat, humidity and drought!

Hardy Ice Plant Delosperma has no serious insect or disease problems in addition to being deer & drought proof.

Tips on Growing: Allow plants to completely dry out between watering. Avoid planting in cold, wet conditions and heavy soil. Use a gravel mulch only.

Perfect for planting at the base of Sedums, Ornamental Grasses, or Butterfly Bush

Fertilizing: Need little to no fertilizing
Winterizing: North of USDA Zones 7, it is at best semi-evergreen and is not reliably winter hardy. They should be sited in dry sheltered locations and given winter protection.
