Delosperma FIRE SPINNER® 'P001S' (30)ct Flat
Common Name: Hardy Ice Plant
News spread like wildfire when this breakthrough Delosperma received Colorado’s Plant Select® award in 2012. Its incredible tricolor flowers are unlike anything we’ve seen in a Delosperma. Nickel-sized blossoms are apricot to bright orange with a ring of hot pink to magenta color surrounding the white eye. They are produced prolifically, blanketing the foliage from late spring through early summer and then often reblooming sporadically throughout the summer months.
FIRE SPINNER® is a weed suppressing groundcover that typically spreads 18-24” wide in two years. Its succulent, apple green foliage is evergreen and takes on bronze tones in winter.
Like all Delospermas, this one is also highly heat and drought tolerant, making it a good choice for waterwise landscapes. It thrives in rock gardens, on slopes, in containers, and in the landscape.
This plant grows best in well-drained, gravelly soil that is not wet in winter. Planting it on a slope will help provide these conditions. Due to its succulent nature, Ice Plant is very drought tolerant. Grow it in a hot, sunny location.
