Ice In The Garden

Last fall, I moved an ice plant into the family room.  It spent the winter by a window where it did well.  Now, it is in the garden.  I planted it in the galvanized water jug.  It is very happy there.


It's starting to bloom.

  2. That looks fantastic the way it overflows in there. Bet it will be exceptional in full bloom.

  3. I have never been able to grow any plant in a container. This plant is a real beauty! Is this the one that blooms open with the sun and close at night?

  4. How exciting to get it flowering as well. I really like the shape of it as it cascades over the side of it's new pot.

  7. I found an ice plant in the most electric pink shade I have ever seen. .It was to go in a container of succulents. .but ended up in a rock crevice near the waterfall. .it is doing quite well in this very warm weather. Will yours overwinter?? They are hardy at least to our zone 6 here in southern Ks.

  8. That's a lovely shade. I'd like to try an ice plant, but worried about over wintering. Glad to hear they can stand to be inside over winter. South window??

  10. I used to grow lots of houseplants when we were renters. I don't remember if I grew any ice plants. I should try one. Yours sure looks happy and healthy! It's great that your loving winter care paid off so well.
