Flora & Fauna, Del Mar: 3 reviews and 3 photos
I have never seen (or I've forgotten) such plants as on my picture.- blooming flowers among thick leaves. Hmm... how is it called in English?
They grow along the Pacific beaches and coast not only in Del Mar.
Comment by VICKI (Expresso):
The ground cover with thick fleshy leaves and beautiful yellow flowers is called "Ice Plant".
Thank you Vicki.
From LINDA (lmqluque):
This is commonly known as "ice plant." This type is "Carpobrotus" a sturdy plant that can live in sand and is usually found in beaches in California.
Thank you Linda.
Comment by JESSICA (jessicadf):
Ice plant also grows in S. Africa, I found out last July. It is a very common plamt in California, as it is a good groundcover against fire.
Thank you Jessica.
