Malephora lutea (Rocky Point Ice Plant)

Malephora lutea
Rocky Point Ice Plant

Collected from a yard in Rocky Point, Mexico, this groundcover has succulent, bright green leaves that provide a lush backdrop for yellow daisy-like flowers. It blooms off and on nearly all year. Plant in full sun, but plants in the low desert will need some partial shade. Provide well-drained soils. It may burn back in the summer, but re-grows quickly when the weather cools off. Birds may peck the succulent leaves to extract liquids in the summer.
