Delosperma Granita Raspberry
Granita Raspberry Ice Plant
DetailsGranita ® Raspberry Ice Plant (Delosperma Granata Raspberry) is a cold-hardy Ice Plant hybrid with simply stunning color. The large shimmering raspberry-red flowers will be the highlight of your late spring garden when this durable groundcover comes into bloom. Discovered as a volunteer seedling in a Salt Lake City garden, the plant has excellent cold hardiness and tolerates drier Western growing conditions. Like all the Ice Plants, mulching with a layer of small gravel provides the perfect surface to protect the spreading stems from excessive winter moisture. Recommended companion plants include Catmint (Nepeta), African Daisy (Gazania) and smaller-growing Beardtongues (Penstemon).

Q & A
Suggested Companion Plants:
USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
