Gardeners' Notes:

Positive BayAreaTropics On Apr 3, 2009, BayAreaTropics from Hayward, CA wrote:

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.

Neutral palmbob On Mar 22, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

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.
