Corpuscularia lehmannii - Ice Plant


Product Details


Corpuscularia lehmannii: Various types of succulents are referred to as Ice Plants, but Corpuscularia lehmannii (sometimes listed as Delosperma lehmannii) has a particularly distinctive form. Its angular, three-sided leaves are extremely fleshy with a smooth, blue-green skin. In the wild, it grows in rocky crevices in South Africa and has a deep taproot to endure full sun and periods of drought. It blooms in the spring / summer growing season with large, many-petaled flowers of butter yellow. The blooms open in the morning and close in the evening.

When grown with lots of sunlight and great drainage (gritty soil, pots with drainage holes, etc.), C. lehmannii can grow 8.0" tall and spread over a foot wide. Water deeply and slightly more frequently than most succulents, paying attention to Signs of Over- and Under-Watering. Through the summer, it produces large, yellow blooms that resemble daisies.

Don't be fooled by the name "Ice Plant"C. lehmannii is not frost hardy and must be indoors before temperatures drop below freezing. When bringing pots indoors for the winter, be sure to place them near sunny windows to keep the plant colorful and compact.
