White trailing ice plant

Delosperma ‘Alba’

Description

White trailing ice plant is a low spreading succulent that can grow 6-12 in. and be planted to cover slopes, banks and parkways of any size. Triangular leaves are dull green; small white flowers are heaviest in mid spring and then occur intermittently throughout the year.

White trailing ice plant is an easy to grow and durable ground cover that can be planted at 12 in. apart to form a dense mat over soil surfaces. It adapts to a variety of soil types and requires low amounts of supplemental water. It can develop a 5-6 in. deep thatch of stems after 8-10 years that can be removed and replanted to refresh its character. Unrooted cuttings can be planted during the spring growing season to establish new plants.
