Succulent Lemon Flowers

Here’s another succulent plant or ice plant but unlike our native Disphyma austral posted yesterday this is an exotic pest (pretty though). I took these photos at a picnic area near the Roxburgh hydro dam in Central Otago, New Zealand on 16 August 2020. Native to South Africa but now widely distributed!

  1. The flowers are a very pretty colour. It looks like that is a very dense mat of leaves – I can imagine that it would swamp smaller plants!
