4-6” tall x 8-10” wide. Jewel of Desert® ‘Peridot’ Ice Plant (Delosperma) is a standout performer for dry, sunny beds. Starry yellow and white blooms with strong succulent foliage respond well to shearing. After the first flush of bloom, this succulent ice plant can be lightly sculpted to encourage more flowers and a tidy habit. Grow Delosperma on slopes to control erosion, tucked between stones in a rock garden, or in a specimen trough where you want a burst of color. It’s also a prime choice for colorful green roofs. Let it spread on sunny banks – in the right conditions, Delosperma will root at nodes along the stems and provide some measure of erosion control. Dry, sunny conditions are essential for this South African native, and in shady sites or wet climates, it is prone to disease and will not thrive. For best results, water infrequently and close to the soil line.
