Succulent Iceplant

1 Review | Write a Review
(Mesembryanthemum crystallinum) Annual or biennial, to 10 inches-Prolific production of daisy-like white to pink flowers in summer. A bed of Iceplant is oddly reminiscent of an undersea stand of sea anemones! The glistening, succulent leaves are edible--making a delicious, slightly tart spinach substitute. The crushed leaves also make a natural lather and have been used as a soap substitute. At one time the leaves were used to treat scurvy on long voyages, which explains its occurrence worldwide, seeds being present in soil dropped by ships in ballast dumps. Native to southern and western Africa. The plants also take up salt and have been used in bioremediation. Tolerates poor soils.Perennial in frost-free climates, where it may become invasive.

What are the pros? very unusual

What are the cons? not very sea anenome to me


I did not get the feeling of under the ocean from these, however I did get a lot of compliments! They were very unique and feeding folk the leaves was quite fun as well as putting them in my salads or even a handful as a treat in the garden; though they cooked poorly for soup or such. They only really came up in my well tended beds, in the wild flower area none that I spied came up. Hoping I collected the seeds properly to plant again, they were very fun!
