The plant is Drosanthemum bicolor and like many of the ice plants it hails from South Africa. I have found the ice plant does well in my rocky alkaline soils so lets see how this performs. For now this specimen has been potted up and I intend to take cuttings which will be planted outside next spring. I have had tremendous success with propagating ice plants and other succulents from cutting. The best medium for their propagation has been pumice.
The plant surprised me with its first bloom today and of course I rushed out there with camera in hand to take its pretty picture.
