Pink hardy ice plant March 18, 2010
With tiny fingers of succulent foliage, this perennial looks a lot like the annual portulaca, only it returns year after year. Slowly spreads to make a wonderful carpet of succulent foliage, with hot pink daisy flowers all summer long. 4″ high, laughs at drought. Can be used as a ground cover or the front of a flower bed. Full sun, 3″ high.
