Ice plant is an old-fashioned perennial with cabbage-like rosettes of succulent foliage throughout summer and autumn. This cultivar creates a striking feature in the autumn flower border with masses of flat, bright pink flower-heads on upright stems with succulent, glaucous leaves. When in flower, it is often buzzing with bees and butterflies. It grows well in full sun in well-drained soil. Divide plants every few years to improve flowering.
