Description / Delosperma 'Jewel of Desert Moonstone' White Ice Plant

Delosperma 'Jewel of Desert Moonstone' stands out as a revolutionary addition to the world of gardening, delivering a constant flourish of ice plant flowers from the onset of spring until the arrival of frost. This white iceplant distinguishes itself not as a rebloomer but as an everbloomer. Its pure white blossoms capture the essence of moonstone or opal, offering a mesmerizing display that enhances its appeal as a white ice plant.

Thriving under the full embrace of the sun, this drought-tolerant variety forms a dense carpet of succulent foliage, barely rising a few inches off the ground while spreading 8 to 10 inches across. In bloom, the plant's stature modestly increases to 4 to 6 inches, presenting a lush, colorful spectacle. The ice plant flowers are daisy-like, with moonstone-hued petals encircling vibrant yellow centers, making them perfect for a variety of garden applications—from mass plantings and accent spots to container arrangements. Their radiant beauty is particularly striking under the sun, marking them as a highlight in any setting.

Beyond its visual allure, Delosperma 'Jewel of Desert Moonstone' exhibits remarkable resilience to heat, humidity, and drought, mirroring the hardiness of the best ice plants. With minimal attention post-establishment, it prospers in less-than-ideal conditions, including poor soils, proving itself as an exemplary white iceplant. Ideal for erosion control on slopes or adding vibrancy to heat-laden spots near driveways, it also fills in barren areas with ease, transforming them into areas of lush, ongoing bloom.

This white ice plant revolutionizes the traditional view of iceplants, shifting the focus from their succulent foliage to a celebration of continuous, lively blossoms. With 'Jewel of Desert Moonstone,' gardeners are treated to a spectacle of ice plant flowers, ensuring a display of color and beauty that spans three seasons each year.

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.
