I was so pleased when DG chose my Hardy Ice Plant for the Bloom of the Day on November 19, 2013! My beautiful plant survived in my perennial garden (Zone 7-A) for three or four years, growing bigger and more beautiful each year - until this year. As spring unfolded and the dahlias, lilies, hibiscus, and alstroemerias emerged from their winter's nap, I strained to see some sign of life from the brownish ice plants - but there was none to see. I poked and prodded, only to discover that these plants were dead, dead, dead! When I went to my local perennial garden shop to whine and lament the demise of my Hardy Ice Plant, the proprietor responded curtly, "yeah I've heard other people say that they lost their Hardy Ice Plants during this especially rough winter. Must have been the ice." HARDY ICE Plant my foot! I bought two replacement plants. Hope springs eternal.
