groundcover, succulent

Drosanthemum floribundum | Rosea Iceplant

Iceplant is a vibrant, colorful succulent that serves a dependable role as a groundcover or bank cover. Flowering is quite dramatic as solid sheets of blooms dominate the landscape in late spring. The flowering season lasts just a few weeks, but plant foliage is attractive on its own. Canopy coverage: 7 square feet, but eventual plant spread is considerable, adding to their coverage.
