Lavender Ice: cool off with this hot new plant
This icy hot little plant comes to Plant Select® from the plantswomen of Perennial Favorites in Rye, CO, Diana Capen & Merrilee Barnett. It is a sport of TABLE MOUNTAIN® ice plant (Delosperma ‘John Proffitt’), keeping the same great mat- forming foliage that tinges purple in the fall and winter. The difference is the shimmering iridescent lavender flowers with a striking dark eye that will keep your hot spot cool all summer.
Lavender Ice is sure to please in a variety of garden conditions, but prefers well- drained soils in a full sun situation. Less is more with Lavender Ice so keep it on the dry side when irrigating and you’ll have a thriving plant covered with a glistening show of flowers all summer. Avoid a situation of winter snow cover and Lavender Ice will return year after year to dazzle your garden with sparkling color.
Lavender Ice combines well with agastache, penstemon, salvia, & other delospermas, providing a glittering carpet of lavender flowers to compliment the purples, oranges, and reds of these garden staples. As the hot days of summer have your garden longing for a cool drink, Lavender Ice will provide the frosty glass of color that hits the spot.
