How to Grow Fire Spinner Ice Plant

Easy to grow hardy ice plants produce a fine mat of little roots as they grow and spreading, giving
them a very neat and tidy appearance in the garden. Here a few tips to successfully growing Delosperma Fire Spinner in the garden:

  1. Hardy Ice Plants, or Deleosperma, like it hot, dry, and sunny.
  2. Good drainage is necessary, if your soil is heavy or drainage is, poor amend first with organic matter and add in a handful or playground sand or small pea gravel to help with drainage.
  3. In colder areas where snow can sit on the ground, plant Fire Spinner on slopes or areas where snow-pack will not sit for prolonged periods.
  4. Once established, this perennial plant is xeric and only needs supplemental water during the heat of the summer.
  5. Fertilizer once in the spring and again mid summer, with a balanced, slow release organic fertilizer.
Plant Fire Spinner in rock gardens, along borders or pathways, in container gardens, as a low maintenance ground cover, and in raised perennial beds. Pair with other hardy Ice Plants to create a carpet of varied flower colors and textures in the garden.
