In my opinion, just THE BEST drought tolerant & deer proof groundcover you can grow! Spreading into the densest, flattest bright emerald green mat to at least 2’ across, it's fantastic for carpeting a rock garden & for trailing (or rather draping) over the edge of a raised bed or rock border. AND it's EVERGREEN & hardy too! It can take your footprints as well when working in your garden, tho I wouldn’t overdo it. Sparkly, 1” bright lemon yellow ice plant-like blooms appear in the Spring to cheer things up even more. Looks great alternated along a border edge with Delosperma sutherlandii (simultaneous pink bloom) & the later-blooming pink Delosperma lavisiae. Feed once a year for super appearance.

Mat forming succulent covered in summer with bright yellow, daisy-like flowers. To less than 6" tall forming low mats of evergreen leaves that turn bronze in winter and spread to 15" wide and beyond over time. A good ground cover for the sunny garden where drainage is excellent and little summer water is provided. Lovely in a rock garden or spilling over a rock wall. Frost hardy to -30 °F, USDA zone 5. Attracts butterflies and is said to be resistant to deer. Aizoaceae
