Beautiful Blooms Until Frost

This striking iceplant is a testimony to the breakthrough science of plant breeding as it continues to impress gardeners and botanists with its long blooming season and exceptional drought-tolerance. The bright white blooms of Delosperma 'Jewel of Desert Moonstone' shine with a pure iridescence like the opal jewel from which they take their name. Easy to grow and maintain, the Jewel of the Desert series have already become famous for constantly blooming even through dry seasons.

Delosperma 'Jewel of Desert Moonstone' makes a particularly striking groundcover with its dense, succulent foliage that can spread about 8 to 10 inches wide. Even in full bloom, the flowers will reach only about 4 to 6 inches from the ground, creating a low sea of dazzling white blooms that float atop luscious, dark green leaves. Delosperma 'Jewel of Desert Moonstone's ability to spread without thinning makes it an ideal choice for large plantings, accents, and containers.

Delosperma 'Jewel of Desert Moonstone's impressive tolerance of heat, humidity, and drought make it able to thrive even in desert conditions. After careful tending in its first year, this plant will need little attention in the following seasons to grow beautifully.
