is one of a number of invasive iceplant species found along California's Pacific coast. It produces large yellow flowers with many narrow petals, similar to the more common carpobrotus edulis
, but with a greater number of petals (between 200 and 250), Petals have thin, tapered tips rather than the rounded tips of carpobrotus edulis. At the center of the flower are many thin, tangled stamens. The succulent leaves are also different, being generally rounded in cross-section rather than triangular, but flat or grooved on the upper surface. The plant originates from South Africa.
