Coastal Pigface

Coastal Pigface 1

Coastal Pigface (Carpobrotus virescens) grows along the southwest coast of Western Australia, from north of Geraldton to east of Esperance. This prostrate plant has fleshy leaves and striking mauve/pink flowers, which bloom from June to January. We saw this plant recently at Minim Cove Park in Perth.
