Alan's Apricot ice plant
Delosperma 'Alan's Apricot'
This superior form has larger (2") showy blooms covering the foliage nearly all summer long. Flower color changes seasonally from a true orangey-apricot to soft orangey-pink and then back again. Brought to Plant Select® by Alan Tower, Spokane WA. The hardiest and longest-blooming of all of our ice plant selections! Good for containers, rock gardens, rock walls and for edging. Xeriscape. Tips from the pros: Wetness in the winter can cause die-back. Thrives in a variety of sites, but grows best in full sun with moderate moisture in dry summers (as in summer monsoons). Does not like bark mulch - consider gravel.
