Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
DELOSPERMA basuticum 'White Nugget' PP15793
Ice Plant, White Nugget Ice Plant
The pure white-flowered 'White Nugget' is heavy-blooming and cold hardy. This tough, drought tolerant succulent was discovered in 1996 by Kelly Grummons at Paulino Gardens of Denver, Colorado and is distinguished by its low compact habit, glassy bright green succulent leaves and small snow white daisy-like flowers. Blooming occurs from spring through summer and flowers may sporadically appear up to frost.
Hot, sunny locations with average, well-drained soil are ideal. Allow plants to completely dry out between water applications, and be sure to refrain from watering in winter. Cold wet conditions will cause root and stem rot. Divide 'White Nugget' if it becomes too crowded and propagate by cuttings.
This is an excellent choice for modern gardeners looking for adaptable succulents with bright white flowers. Plant it in broad shallow containers, stone troughs, rock gardens or pebbly sunny border edges. It will also thrive in crevices between rock walls.
