Brighten your garden with the vibrant Gelato Orange Ice Plant, a stunning heirloom flower renowned for its vivid orange blooms. Known as Livingston Daisy or Bokbaai vygie, this variety of Dorotheanthus bellidiformis offers a dazzling display of succulent foliage covered in striking orange flowers that can transform any garden space or container into a burst of color. The Ice Plant thrives in sunny locations, making it perfect for rock gardens, borders, or as a drought-tolerant ground cover.

This easy-to-grow plant not only adds ornamental value with its lively orange petals but is also extremely resilient, capable of flourishing in tough environmental conditions. It's an ideal choice for gardeners seeking low maintenance yet visually impactful plants. As an annual, it provides a seasonal spectacle that is sure to capture the attention and admiration of visitors and passersby.

For spring planting, a 30 day cold stratification is needed before sowing. Start Ice Plant seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date, or direct sow outdoors after the last frost. Sow seeds on the surface of well-draining soil, lightly pressing them into the soil, but not covering them. Space plants 8-12 inches apart in full sun. Water regularly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Seeds should germinate within 10-14 days. Ice Plants are drought-tolerant once established and will thrive in poor, sandy soils.
