Ice ice baby! Delosperma lehmannii, aka Ice Plant is actually not frost hardy at all! Oh the lies! It’s still a really cool plant with an unusual form. Chunky, three-sided leaves with smooth, blue-green skin that begs to be touched. It wants lots of sun and infrequent water. It will produce yellow daisy-like flowers in the spring.
Ideal in warm climate landscapes and container gardens but for most of us it is especially happy to be a houseplant as its only hardy to zone 9. We still love you anyway, Ice Plant! Protect your PRINCE OF PARADISE™ from frost!
