This new hybrid selection of South African ice plant is a tough, vigorous cold-hardy form with large, blazing orange-red flowers in late spring and early summer. It was selected from an evaluation plot of seedlings by David Salman, Waterwise Gardening, for its superior flower size, unusual flower color and attractive habit. Like most of the hardy ice plants, the small succulent leaves are evergreen. Useful in rock gardens and rock walls. Xeriscape
