We had a sharp frost this year and my two plants,in 2" pots took it with little loss of leaf. I just planted them out today and the white color stands out among mostly green succulents.
Not seen that often,so don't take finding them once in a box store as going to be common.

Marginal plant in zone 9b, but survives... small, not very prolific, ice plant with nearly pure white coating on the finger-like succulent leaves. Texture is fuzzy to nearly woolly.
