The AZ Ice Plant-Copper, scientifically known as Delosperma cooperi 'Copper', is a striking variety of the hardy ice plant, renowned for its vibrant copper to orange flowers. This succulent groundcover is a popular choice in landscapes for its drought tolerance, low-maintenance care, and the bright splash of color it adds to sunny garden spots. Originating from South Africa, Delosperma cooperi varieties are well-suited to similar arid and semi-arid climates, making them an excellent choice for water-wise gardening.

Growing to about 2 to 4 inches in height with a spreading habit of 18 to 24 inches, 'Copper' forms a dense mat of succulent green leaves that serve as a lush backdrop to its daisy-like flowers. The blooms appear profusely from late spring to early fall, attracting pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

Adapted to full sun, the AZ Ice Plant-Copper thrives in well-draining soil and is particularly suited for rock gardens, slopes, and borders, where its trailing habit can be used to full effect. It is highly drought-tolerant once established, requiring minimal watering and care, which makes it an ideal plant for xeriscaping and low-water landscapes.

In landscaping, Delosperma cooperi 'Copper' is often used as a groundcover to fill in sunny areas where other plants might struggle. Its vibrant flower color and succulent foliage add texture and visual interest to garden beds, and its hardy nature makes it a reliable choice for challenging growing conditions.

Overall, the AZ Ice Plant-Copper is a versatile and attractive groundcover, ideal for adding low-maintenance color and texture to sunny, dry areas of the garden. Its drought tolerance, ease of care, and striking flower color make it a favored choice for gardeners looking to create sustainable and vibrant landscapes.
