Some Perennials will be shipped to you from our greenhouses. They will be in pots and may have actively growing green leaves. These pots should be immersed in water upon arrival to thoroughly soak the root ball. These growing plants must be hardened off before planting outside. Keep in a cool bright room, and place outside on mild days and gradually leave outside for longer periods of time. After a week or so, or when nighttime temperatures are above freezing, plant outside. If a severe dip in temperature is expected, you may want to place straw or an old blanket over the green leaves to protect them from severe damage. Frost or cold will not permanently hurt the plant, but it may damage the new leaves and set growth back.
Also known as Ice Plant. Plant in well-drained soil that will not be wet in winter. Planting on a slope is recommended and provides a great groundcover. Space plants 12-18" apart and lightly cover roots with soil to crown level. Due to its succulent nature, Ice Plant is very drought tolerant. Grow in a hot, sunny location.
