There are so many different succulents with the common name Ice Plant. This one, however, is one of the more unique selections of the bunch. Its pudgy angular leaves are arranged in opposite pairs that come out of the growing point perpendicular to each other giving the plant an unusual patterned appearance. The plant gets its name from the attractive pink color of the young stems between the gray-green leaves. Pink Stemmed Ice Plant is threatened in its South African homeland due to habitat loss. Keep it in a container so it can be brought inside for winter and tip prune any long stems to keep it bushy.
