Delosperma cooperi Trailing 'Cooper's'

Ice Plant

Cooperi produces brilliant purple blooms amidst its spiky, glossy green foliage. The perennial, Delosperma, is commonly referred to as Ice Plant and is a succulent. The Delosperma will spread over and around rocks, does well in full sun, under trees in the shade, and will gracefully flow over the sides of containers and baskets. The Delosperma is most desired for its rapid growth rate, low maintenance and beautiful trailing growth habit.  Although it prefers full sun, the plant will still prosper with some shade as well. Delosperma will mature to approximately 4-6” tall and about 8-12” wide. Space about 8-12” apart and not too deep! Delosperma works very well in containers and baskets too!
