Delosperma cooperi or iceflower is a solid plant and is well suited for a rock garden.
Despite the origins of South Africa, this strong bloom is also good winter hard in Western Europe.
Planted on poor soil, this alpine plant has no problems as well as short-term drought.
Ideally, the plant is planted in well-drained soil or planted higher and, in winter, it is as dry as possible in a sheltered place.

The drier the iceflower stands, the better it tolerates the frost. The excess moisture disappears from the blade causing less frost damage.
Furthermore, the Delosperma likes sunny. The Delosperma cooperi is an evergreen plant and is at most 10/15 cm high.
The green leaf is occupied with a silver / white haze. This fat plant blooms tall and rich.
The bloom begins in May and lasts until August. The color of the flowers is purple and when the flowers are fully opened, they have a diameter of 4 cm.
In the evening the flowers will also close again or rain when the weather is cloudy. In sunny and clear weather the flowers will open again.

If you apply planting, you have enough of 6-8 plants per m². Hardy zone 7a if in a dry place with good drainage in winter, other zone 8a.
Winter hardness zone 7a (-15 / -17ºC).
