Spreading succulent ground cover. Triangular in section leaves to 10cm.

Light purple shading to white pig face like flowers, most of the year, followed by purplish-red fruits. These fruits were eaten by the indigenous, the salty leaves were also eaten with meat due to their saltiness.

Mainly a coastal dune plant but can also be used in gardens and other coastal woodland revegetation projects. Fantastic as a ground cover to prevent weeds.

Height x Width: Prostrate x 2-3m
Conditions: Front line coastal dune plant. Tolerant of salt spray and sandy soils. Full sun to Semi-shade
Flowers: Most of the year
