Iceplant Livingstone Daisy Sparkle Blend HEIRLOOM seeds

Dorotheanthus bellidiformis

Item #1309

Annual. Native to South Africa, annual iceplant thrives in hot, dry environments and puts on a show when the sun shines. The 1½" flowers in neon shades of orange, pink, purple, red, white, and yellow, include some bi-colors, and make a pretty carpet of color with dense, spreading, succulent foliage. Sow along borders, between pavers, as a groundcover, in rock gardens, or containers. Attracts bees and other pollinators. Fun to scatter here and there like wildflower seed for dashes of color throughout the garden!
