LAMPRANTHUS

From South Africa. Most of the ice plants with large, brilliant flowers belong to this genus, which includes plants formerly called Oscularia. Plants are fleshy, erect or trailing, woody at base. Select in bloom for the color you want. Cut back lightly after bloom to eliminate fruit capsules, encourage new leafy growth. Good at seashore. Flowers attract bees.

Lampranthus blandus

To 6 in. high. Leaves look like agglomerations of tiny green pyramids. Flowers are pale pink daisies.
