Description for Delosperma Congestum

The hardy Ice Plants are native to dry areas in South Africa but are amazingly hardy in North America, provided they are grown in very well-drained soil. This species forms a spreading carpet of succulent evergreen leaves, bearing starry yellow flowers for months on end. Leaves turn maroon during winter.

Being an alpine species, it appreciates more regular moisture than other South African succulents. Plant Gold Nugget where it receives some afternoon shade, particularly where summer temperatures are hot. A gem for mountain rock gardens.

Outdoor beds with new plants should be initially watered once every 5 to 7 days for the first month or so after transplanting.

After the first year, most cacti species need a good soaking only once every 2-4 weeks during the spring and summer if there has been no rain. Potted plants require more frequent, regular watering, especially if the weather is hot and dry. 20 degrees C [68 degrees F] Apply any organic fertilizer
