Mesembryanthemum - ice plant, Livingstone daisy

DESCRIPTION: Long-flowering groundcover plant for sunny dry places. Showy daisy flowers and small fleshy succulent leaves covered in 'crystals', hence its common name of ice plant. Good for planting around property in fire-risk areas to act as a break. Will often grow in salty soil.
PLANTING: Sow seeds in Spring-Summer directly into final position or in seed trays/pots, and keep moist. Cover the seeds with soil to 5mm. Thin plants once they develop 2-4 leaves and are easily handled. Plant in free draining soil in a sunny location for best flowering. If planted early they will flower in the same year.
CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and continue to provide water especially during dry spells. Mulch plants to keep the shallow roots cool in summer. For an extra long flowering season, remove spent blooms and feed with liquid fertiliser
