Delosperma 'Jewel of Desert Moonstone'

Description

Not So Much a Rebloomer, as it is an Ever Bloomer.

The Jewel of Desert series is a breeding breakthrough, delivering bright blooms on ground-hugging plants continuously from spring until frost. These easy iceplants aren't rebloomers—they are everbloomers. Delosperma 'Jewel of Desert Moonstone' is pure white variety that makes the iridescent sheen look particularly magnificent, resembling the "fire" that glimmers off of moonstone or opal.

Exceptionally drought-tolerant, this sun-loving plant forms a dense mat of succulent foliage just a few inches high, and spreads 8 to 10 inches wide. In full bloom it's barely 4 to 6 inches off the ground, yet every inch is colorful and lush.

The 2-inch flowers are daisy-shaped and softly colored, with the moonstone petals surrounding the charming yellow mounds at the center. Ideal for large plantings, accents, and containers, they are long-lasting and neon-bright in the sun-soaked garden.

Best of all, Delosperma 'Jewel of Desert Moonstone' is just as tolerant of heat, humidity, and drought as traditional hardy iceplants. Pamper it the first year, then let it go—it will thrive in the poorest conditions provided it has nonstop sun and good soil drainage. Let it spread down a slope or bank, anchoring the soil in place to prevent erosion. Design a mass planting in the baking-hot bed beside the driveway, where heat rises from the pavement all summer long. Or fill in those bare areas where the hose doesn't quite reach.

Delosperma 'Jewel of Desert Moonstone' turns hardy iceplants from a groundcover primarily interesting for its succulent foliage into a bloom machine. Enjoy three seasons of color every year from this rough-and-tumble garden performer.
