Ice plant

Zone 37924 | Barbj added on March 29, 2018 | Answered

I love my ice plants because it’s a low ground cover and flowers beautifully. There is A LOT of dry brittle on this years patch, BUT there are new buds attached to the dry masses. My husband always wants to just pull out all the dry stuff but I just let it go until the green succulents all come through. Am I doing the right thing or should I remove the dry brittle parts . Thanks Barb

It won't hurt it to remove the brittle parts. In fact, it can help it grow a little better. You can remove it if you would like. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/ice-plant/growing-hardy-ice-plant.htm
