Out of stock
These little succulent groundcovers stand up to heat, drought, frost, and coastal spray, bursting into bright colour. The juicy stems hold precious moisture, perfect for outback desert gardens, rooftop balconies, windy locations, and as firebreak plants.

We love cooperi for the vivid colour, abundant blooms, resilience to cold and heat

Delosperma cooperi - ice plant
APPEARANCE: Low-growing trailing South African succulent that forms a carpet of spreading stems. Very slender fleshy green leaves and small shiny purple-pink daisy flowers cover the plant in full bloom; peak flowering is in summer, and intermittently through the warmer months. Leaf size is much smaller than carpobrotus, and a little fatter than the Jewel Series Delosperma
USE FOR : Rockeries, pots, landscaping, groundcover, xeriscaping. Coastal and outback gardens, rooftop gardens, green living walls.
PLANTING : Hardy and drought tolerant once established. Cold hardy to -20C, reportedly. Does not like wet feet or moist rich soils. Plant in light free-draining soil in sun for maximum colour and compact shape.
CARE: Water lightly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Once established, water only when soil is dry. Keep it in a sunny position for at least part of the day.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 0.1m H x 0.6m W.
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants with a healthy young root system and will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. May be supplied as 'plugs', shipped inside a plastic pot for protection. These are slightly smaller than our usual tubestock, with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on. You can see an example in the image gallery
