(Yellow Ice Plant) Delosperma nubigenum is an outstanding groundcover and rock garden plant. The succulent foliage hugs the ground and forms a dense 2 inch high mat that is covered with hundreds of bright yellow daisies in the spring. This variety is more cold hardy than Delosperma cooperi, but not quite as heat tolerant. Plant  Delosperma nubigenum in a partially shaded spot if you are in a typically hot area. The evergreen foliage also turns bright red in the winter for an extra season of interest.
