Delosperma 'Violet Wonder', from the Wheels of Wonder™ collection, is another WOW iceplant. The vibrant metallic blooms have contrasting pastel violet and 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.
