Iridescent Orange Blooms on a Hardy Iceplant

The Jewel of Desert series combines the hardiness of the iceplant with beautiful daisy-like blooms
Plant Patent Applied For.

This short little Iceplant is a vision lining a driveway or covering a large patch of ground: the bright orange, iridescent blooms feature a a creamy white center with a magenta sheen. Jewel of Desert is a breeding breakthrough that delivers bright blooms on groundhugging plants continuously from spring until frost. Not a rebloomer -- an everbloomer, and it's so easy to grow!

Exceptionally drought-tolerant, this sun-loving plant forms a dense mat of succulent foliage just a few inches high, and spreads 15 to 20 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 vibrantly colored, with bright orange petals surrounding white, magenta-tinged centers. Ideal for large plantings, accents, and containers, they are long-lasting and neon-bright in the sun-soaked garden.

Best of all, Topaz is just as tolerant of heat, humidity, and drought as traditional hardy iceplant. 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!

Jewel of Desert turns hardy iceplant 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! Zones 5 to 10.

This plant is amazing for color

If you want a plant that produces continuous color throughout the growing season, plant this ice plant. It can grow almost anywhere. Few plants have I been so pleased with!!
