Bergeranthus vespertinus (Ice Plant) (sometimes called Bergeranthus jamesii) is native to South Africa and was introduced by plant explorer Kelly Grummons of Prairie Storm Nursery in Denver, Colorado. It requires a full-sun to light afternoon shade location in average to waterwise, well-drained soil. Once established it is a drought-tolerant, low-maintenance plant. Attractive in combination with other succulents, it’s a lovely specimen succulent that makes a nice groundcover or addition to a rock garden with protection in colder zones. Plant in a pot or trough, and keep it close to enjoy the blooms. The Bergeranthus plant family is named for Alwin Berger, a German botanist from the late 1800s-early 1900s who dedicated his career to succulent plants, especially agaves and cacti.
