Description / Delosperma 'Jewel of Desert Garnet' Ice Plant

Delosperma Jewel of Desert Garnet thrives as a beacon in gardens across North America, a testament to its remarkable hardiness far from its South African roots. This Jewel of Desert variety demands nothing more than full sun and well-drained soil to transform your garden space into a dazzling display of resilience and beauty. The plant's dense foliage, a lush backdrop of green, sets the stage for the stunning daisy-like flowers that bloom in vivid shades of pink, each centered with a vibrant yellow eye, creating a visual spectacle that's almost neon in its intensity.

The Ice Plant Jewel of Desert is celebrated not only for its striking colors but also for its extended blooming period, outlasting the typical ice plant's floral show. Its exceptional durability makes Jewel of Desert Garnet Ice Plant an ideal candidate for challenging hot and dry environments, whether nestled in a rock garden or defining the edges of a border. The plant's flowers, with their remarkable color saturation, offer an unparalleled aesthetic appeal.

Beyond its visual allure, Delosperma Jewel of Desert Garnet stands out for its adaptability. Its cousin, the Delosperma cooperi, shares this resilience, thriving under similar conditions. The Jewel of Desert Ruby, with its complementary hues, could serve as an exquisite counterpart in a garden designed for year-round interest. The Jewel of Desert Garnet Ice Plant is perfect for mass planting, where its blue-green foliage and long bloom season can be appreciated in full measure. The addition of a white eye to the flowers introduces a striking contrast, further enhancing the plant's visual impact.

Planting Delosperma Jewel of Desert Garnet promises not just a seasonal spectacle but a year-round gem that enriches the garden with its enduring beauty and vibrant color palette. It's a testament to the magic that can be achieved when the right plant finds its place in the sun.

Ice plants are flowering succulents that require little care once established. Due to their low maintenance needs and drought tolerance, delosperma are ideal for planting in xeriscape gardens or areas of the garden where other less hardy plants might struggle.
