Jewel of the Desert Garnet Ice Plant is a low growing, tough groundcover with excelent color. These spread rapidly, are water-wise once established, and offer interest in color and texture. Can be sheared back in order to control their spill onto pavement, and their root systems can help knit and stabilize soil such as on hillsides.
