Carpobrotus rossii ‘Pink Passion’ – Native Pigface

Carpobrotus ‘Pink Passion’ is a wonderfully hardy ground covering perennial succulent. It can spread to 3 metres wide. It has large, silky bright pink flowers in spring and summer. Drought, salt and somewhat frost resistant. A fast growing, easy care plant that can be used for stablisation of dunes and banks. Likes a well drained soil, from clay loam to sandy. The plant is moderately fire retardant, so is good planted close to homes instead of more flammable plants.
A good bush tucker plant. The ripe fruit is best eaten by sucking the seeds and pulp out from the base, and has a fruity, salty taste.
