This new ice plant hails from the mountains of South Africa's Eastern Cape Province, but has adapted well to drier parts of the US. The 2" tall x 18" wide mats of fleshy green foliage are blanketed from April through August (except in excessive heat) with coral red stars. Delosperma dyeri was a 2007 Plant Select winner (Colorado State University/Denver Botanic Gardens). As with most delospermas, well-drained soils are essential to its survival.
