1" tall x 15-18" wide (cutting propagated). My favorite new groundcover ice plant discovered by nurseryman Kelly Grummons (owner of Timberland Gardens, Arvada, CO) growing as a volunteer seedling in his gravel driveway. 'Blut' has attractive deep green, slightly flattened leaves that grow to form a nice flat mat of evergreen foliage. Blooming through the summer months, this beauty has the most intensely magenta-red flowers ever seen in the genus. Once established, grow this plant hot and dry to intensify the flower color. Cannot tolerate foot traffic. Good for Firescaping

Flat of 32 plants will cover 40-48 square feet when planted together
