Coorong Crystal Iceplant

The prettiest native in town with its dewy, crystal stem. This green succulent annual ground cover has huge succulent leaves in Spring, with glistening bubbles that are a salty surprise on the underside of the leaves and stems. In Summer, the leaves turn to a small grey form with attractive pink flower buds and white flowers. These flower buds are much sort after by chefs as an edible decoration.

Our Crystal Ice Plant is cultivated in growing boxes of composed sea weed. This sustainable production of Crystal Ice Plant can guarantee availability of tender leaves and stems during winter and flower buds in Summer.

Crystal Ice Plant can be used steamed, stir-fried or blanched, is a great complement to seafood dishes and makes a showy, fresh offering laid out on a cheese platter.
