This came to me as Ice Plant, and surprised me with yellow flowers... Any ID? Thanks, John

it looks like a Sedum.


Hello Pardancanda - I'm not absolutely sure but it might be worth looking up Mesembryanthemum basutoland.

John, there is a new yellow 'ice plant'. Azalea has one. I have to find out where she got it and stop by there. it's very pretty.

looks like Sedum spathulifoilium or maybe Sedum acre

Thank you all for the ID's. I agree Mark, that it must be a Sedum. Peter, the flowers do resemble Mesembryanthemum, but I cannot find a photo of the one you mention on the Web. tiG, please let me know what you find out! Lilith, I grow Sedum acre, that is much smaller in scale. The other one you named has a more open, taller habit. Thanks all! John

I don't think it's a sedum, but a Delosperma.

Found it! I knew I'd had this one before ~ Delosperma nubigenum.

I agree with Wingnut. It's Delosperma nubigenum. Check out the picture on this page:

Agreed, looks like the photos of Delosperma nubigenum. Thanks Wingnut and Dave. I do seem to recall that Mesembryanthemum is another Genus name no longer in use... will go check your other posting Wingnut... John

I hope the yellow Ice Plant that I bought turns out this pretty - it hasn't bloomed yet. But my dil just returned from Calif, and brought me a pale pink one and a bright orange one - can't wait til they all start to bloom - my hot pink one is blooming bit time!! Didn't know they came in so many colors. I notice there is a difference in the size of the leaves on each of them.
