Ice Plant

I came across this plant while doing some garden shopping yesterday and thought it would make a great showcase for the week. Ice plant grows year round, with individual shoot segments growing more than 3 ft (1 m) per year. Ice plants can grow to at least 165 ft (50 m) in diameter. Flowering occurs almost year round, beginning in February in southern California (CA as a reference) and continuing through fall in northern California, with flowers present for at least a few months in any given population. Seed production is high, with hundreds of seeds produced in each fruit.


"The concept for C3 Gardens has been a dream of mine for almost a decade. I love plants, design, and Florida. After trialing new seasonal plant combinations on Marco Island for 5 years, we are now proud to offer the area the finest Custom, Creative, and Colorful gardens possible."
