The Q&A Archives: Ice Plants

Question: After purchasing blooming iridescent orange ice plants and planting them (Late April) in my front garden, the original blooms have now died and I still have not seen NEW blooms. Doesn't this plant continue blooming through Spring and Summer?

Answer: There are hundreds of ice plants in different genera so without knowing exactly which one you have, I can't confirm the typical bloom period. However, since you recently transplanted, it is likely that the iceplant is just going through a bit of transplant shock (especially since temperatures are warming up) and when its root system establishes, it will bloom again.
