Just like the generic term "daisy", all ice plants are not alike. Numerous species of ice plant are found in at least nine different genera. These low-growing succulent perennials and a few annuals were once all lumped under the genus Mesembryanthemum.

Today this genus only contains annuals that have naturalized along the California coast. Other genera that contain "ice plant" that you may recognize are: Aptenia; Carpobrotus; Cephalophyllum; Delosperma; Drosanthemum; Lampranthhus; Malephora; Dorotheanthus. All grow best in well drained soil and are not traffic tolerant. Some are quite invasive.
