Carpobrotus Edulis - Highway Ice Plant
A native to South Africa, this mat-forming succulent can reach up to 3m long, often trailing over cliffs in the wild. Leaves are succulent, tri-angled, and curve upwards. The leaves are edible, as is the fruit, which can be eaten raw or made into jam.
Solitary flowers are produced during late winter and spring months, yellow but turning pink with age, daisy-shaped and around 1.5cm in diameter. The fruits are around 3am in diameter, green to begin and turning red as it matures.
Consider frost tender, but can tolerate freezing temperatures for a short period of time.
