Click to see full-size image Carpobrotus edulis
Family: Aizoaceae
Highway Iceplant, Hottentot Fig, Iceplant
Origin: South Africa
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunDry conditionsWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersInvasiveEdibleSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Highway iceplant (Carpobrotus edulis) is a ground-hugging succulent perennial that roots at the nodes, has a creeping habit, and often forms deep mats covering large areas. Shallow, fibrous roots are produced at every node that is in contact with the soil. Highway iceplant has been widely planted for soil stabilization and landscaping.

Highway iceplant tolerates a range of soil moisture and nutrient conditions and can establish and grow in the presence of competitors and herbivores. Drought resistant, does better with some water in winter during the growing season, needs good drainage.

Glottiphyllum sp., Tongue Plant

Click to see full-size image Glottiphyllum sp.
Family: Aizoaceae
Tongue Plant
Origin: South Africa
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

There are less than 20 Glottiphyllum coming mostly from the southern part of South Africa. They are clustering plants similar looking to the bigger trailing ice plant with the difference that they have virtually no stem. The cylindrical, flattened or tongue-shaped leaves come in groups of 2 or 3 pairs, soon pretty crowded. The name Glottiphyllum comes from the Greek for "shaped as a tongue"

They large yellow flowers come mostly in late fall. Glottiphyllum are almost always self-sterile, which means that you need different plants from the same location to obtain seeds. Since this is not always easy to achieve, it accounts for the large number of misidentified hybrids. Glottiphyllum are generally easy to grow from seeds.
