The Purple Stardust Ice Plant is a wonderful attraction that is as delicious as it is beautiful! The bright, shimmering blooms and succulent foliage of this fast-growing perennial form a beautiful flowering ground cover that is also edible and nutritious. Leaves and stems can be enjoyed raw or cooked, offering a slightly salty, delicious flavor. An excellent spinach substitute in salads! Prefers slightly dry soil once the plants are started. Enjoy this crispy treat in your garden this summer!
