Jewel of Desert Ice Plant - Delosperma cooperi 'Jewel of Desert'

Regular price $5.99

Perfect for the full sun miniature garden. A hardy, succulent perennial that stays low the ground and flowers throughout the summer. Pretty magneta flowers with white centers are quite striking against the greens of the the garden. 

When it's not in bloom, the fun-textured mat of foliage stays semi-evergreen in the winter, but may get a little purple blush to the leaves if the temperatures dip. (Semi-evergreen means it dies back a little in the winter's dormant months, but not completely.)
