This 'Hardy Iceplant' is a mat forming perennial that comes to us from the highlands of South Africa. The carpet of small, succulent foliage covers itself in a closely held blanket of silky petalled, tricoloured, daisy-like flowers. Each starry bloom has a small yellow centre  surrounded by many petals that grade from white ,through yellow, to a prominent deep pink perimeter. Delosperma will appreciate excellent drianage to survive our wet winters.
