Discover the beauty of the Gelato White Ice Plant, also known as Livingstone Daisy or Bokbaai vygie. This heirloom flower variety is cherished for its vibrant white blooms that cover the succulent foliage, creating a stunning carpet of color. Originating from the arid regions of South Africa, Dorotheanthus bellidiformis thrives in sunny, well-drained conditions, making it an excellent choice for rock gardens, borders, or as a drought-tolerant ground cover. Its daisy-like white flowers not only add a touch of elegance to your garden but also attract pollinators, enhancing the biodiversity of your outdoor space.

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.
