Pink ice plant

Lampranthus deltoides

Description

Pink ice plant is a low and dense growing succulent, with a rambling habit, growing 10-12 in. high and spreading 24-30 in. across. Its pale blue-gray leaves are distinctly triangular in shape and have small pointed teeth on the margins. Pale rose colored flowers with yellow centers cover the plant in mid to late spring.

This is an interesting species that shows well in small spaces, rock gardens and in containers where there is an opportunity to see its unique foliage character and enjoy the flowers when in bloom. It is highly adapted to sun and heat, and can endure periods of summer moisture stress.
