The annual Ice Plant (Livingstone Daisy) native to South Africa grows well in a hot, dry environment.
It looks great along walkways by creating colorful carpets all summer long.
Livingstone daisies have succulent leaves up to 3 inches long. Flowers have dark centers and are colored pink, white, purple, lavender, crimson, or orange. Plants grow up to 8 inches high and spread to 12 inches wide.
The red/purple fruit is edible with a sweet/salty taste.
Deadhead flowers regularly to prolong flowering. Deadheading daisies not only improves their overall appearance, but will also inhibit seed production and stimulate new growth, which encourages additional blooms. By deadheading regularly, you can extend the flowering season.
Livingstone Daisy attracts bees and other pollinators.
