coopers ice plant

Zone zone 5 | richcr44 added on May 5, 2014 | Answered

Planted these in early fall and have yet shown any green or life. I am in zone 5, central New York, which had a very hard winter. Should there be some green showing by now? My hostas just popped up in the last few days.

Thanks

All over the country greenery is late in arriving, or not arriving at all. While there's a good chance that your ice plant, being newly planted in the fall, did not make it through the winter, it still might show up, especially if it was well mulched. FYI, here's an article on ice plant: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/ice-plant/growing-hardy-ice-plant.htm
