Heartleaf Ice Plant, nee Baby Sunrose, nee Red Apple Ice Plant

IMG_3280 IMG_3277I have loved ice plant ever since I first spied it in CA and brought cuttings back to my greenhouse room in Wyoming.  I have been known to pull off the hiway to pinch off a chain of ice plant.  The beach was another favorite gathering place.  Now I live surrounded by it–growing from planters, along sidewalks and crawling over pumice grinding stones hundreds of years old.
