Aptenia cordifolia variegata is commonly known as “ Baby Sunrose", "Desert Rose", "Heartleaf Iceplant" and "Dew Plant". A variegated perennial ground cover, it hugs the ground with thick succulent stems and heart-shaped, glossy mid-green leaves. It produces red daisiy-like blooms that quickly change colour to hot-pink. The flowers open and close according to sun exposure. Ideal for hanging baskets, rockeries or that dry, exposed sloping garden. 

 

*Please note: This plant is regarded as an ornamental weed in VIC, SA and WA.
