Aptenia cordifolia 'variegata'

Heartleaf Ice Plant
aka Mesembryanthemum cordifolia. A dainty little sun rose with creamy edged fleshy leaves and rose colored flowers all summer, it adds a different texture to drought tolerant mixed planters. We used this Aptenia in some of our vertical gardens last year, and this plant did exceptionally well. Stays under 2" tall. Available in 2.5" or 4" pots.
