Ice Plant is a drought tolerant, lovely flower that is an excellent option to fill in a troublesome area in the garden. Easy care. Bright pink blooms cover the plant for most of the summer and fall. The foliage is mostly evergreen, and because of this, makes a great year-round ground cover. Prefers full sun but can tolerate light shade. Because ice plants are succulents, they do not tolerate wet soil, though they do well in poor soil.
