    Ice Plant

    Ice Plant, common name for a hardy annual herb (see Pink). It is native to warm, dry climates all over the world. The ice plant is a fleshy, spreading plant having leaves covered with large, shiny hairs. The inconspicuous flowers bear many slender, pinkish-white petals. The plant grows well in rocky or sandy areas and is cultivated in rock gardens.(這種植物在岩石與砂石構成的地區生長良好,並可在岩質的菜園中耕種)

    In some southern climates it grows as a perennial, reaching a height of about 15 cm (about 6 in).

    Scientific classification: The ice plant belongs to the family Aizoaceae. It is classified as Mesembryanthemum crystallinum.

    low, fleshy plant ( Cryophytum crystalinum ) of warm, dry, barren regions. It is cultivated chiefly as a curiosity because of its leaves, densely coated with small, glistening, bladder-shaped hairs. The ice plant and many other related herbs (e.g., New Zealand spinach), often with fantastic shapes, are sometimes combined in the genus Mesembryanthemum. They grow in abundance in South Africa, whence many had been introduced to European botanical gardens by 1600. Ice plants are classified in the division Magnoliophyta , class Magnoliopsida, order Caryophyllales, family Aizoaceae.

    The ice plant is a little-known vegetable of the southern hemisphere, now introduced to warm areas in the north. It is seldom grown in Florida gardens and is unlikely to become more than a curiosity plant.

    Ice plant is named after the shimmering silvery dots that cover the leaves. Other names used for it are fig marigold (after the edible fruits), frost plant, diamond plant, mid-day flowers, and dew plant.

    This is not to be confused with New Zealand spinach which is sometimes referred to in gardening booklets as New Zealand ice plant

    The plant is a perennial, but is grown in gardens as an annual. It is a small (about the size of bibb lettuce), peculiar looking plant with numerous 12-15 inch long stems. Blades of the leaves widen towards the outer ends and become narrow near the stalk.

    All green parts of the plant are covered with small, very transparent, membranous bladders, which give the plant the appearance of being covered with frozen dew. Each tiny, white flower has a swollen calyx covered with the bladders. Seeds are very small, black, and shiny.

    The culture of ice plant appears to be quite easy. Sow the very small seeds shallowly like spinach seeds. Space rows 1 foot apart, and thin plants to stand 6 inches in the row.

    2005-11-02 16:35:49 補充:

    Ice plant is favored by hot and dry climatic conditions. Since Florida's climate is hot and sometimes dry, it is possible that the plant would do well here if planted in the spring. A big problem is lack of a source of seeds.

    Pick the leaves as wanted once the plant has several leaves and is well established. The slightly acid-flavored, fleshy parts of the leaves are boiled and served like spinach.
