DELOSPERMA

This group of ice plants includes several unusually hardy South African ground covers and rock garden plants. With the latter, withhold water in fall to harden off plants for winter; they also appreciate a gravel mulch to keep crowns dry. All species do best with regular water in summer, but they will get by with just enough water to keep them looking bright and fresh. Except as noted, fleshy leaves are rich green.

Delosperma nubigenum

Only 1 in. tall, spreading to 3 ft. The cylindrical leaves turn red in fall and winter, green up again in spring. Bright golden yellow, 1 to 1 1/2 -in. flowers cover the plant in late spring.
