Delosperma sphalmanthoides is a small compact cold-hardy ice-plant (the smallest species in the genus). This is truly a gem of the plant world, with minuscule, blue-green, fingerlike leaves held upward in a small cushion that may grow to 2,5 in height and 20-30 cm in diameter. The crowded cylindrical leaves are covered in spring by purple flowers.

Habit: It is a perennial succulent which makes a tight mat resembling a small blue-green sea anemone that has anchored itself in the ground.
Leaves: Tiny finger-like, plump, blue-gray.
Flowers: Spidery fuchsia-colored.
Blooming season: Flowers in very early spring. The flower buds become visible in December and excessive dryness after this point leads to poor flower development.
Hardiness: This species can withstand severe frost (hardiness to -18° C or even less) and can be planted out of doors in northern hemisphere rock-gardens (USDA zone 4 to 8).
Exposure: They seems to enjoy a hot, full sun position in the rockery, where winter snows melt quickly.
