Delosperma 'Fire Wonder', from the Wheels of Wonder™ collection, is another WOW iceplant. The vibrant metallic blooms have contrasting bright orange and yellow halos, with white centers. The succulent foliage is deep green and aids in drought protection. Give the plants well-drained soil, adequate water (no more than 1" a week), a small amount of fertilizer, and they will reward you with a summer long blooming display. This easy to maintain plant is drought tolerant, long lived in well-drained soils, and can be grown in containers. Frequented by butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.
