Carpobrotus, more commonly known as pigface or ice plant, is a ground-creeping plant with succulent leaves that is native to Australia, South Africa, and Chile. It produces daisy-like flowers, which can come in shades of pink, purple, orange, yellow and white, during Spring and Summer. It grows best in full sunlight in ground with good drainage, and is very salt and wind tolerant, which makes it ideal for the ATCA site!
