Cacti and succulents, Ground covers, Perennials
Trailing plants with coarse, succulent leaves and summer blooms; useful for covering sunny banks (but not steep banks, since their weight could cause the soil to slide). Plant about 1 1/2 ft. apart. Can rot in very wet conditions; can suffer dieback if severely stressed by lack of water or nitrogen during growth season. Scale insects can cause problems.Carpobrotus chilensis
