Carpobrotus rossii (Aizoaceae) 2:238

Carpobrotus rossii (Pigface) is a common native succulent herb. It is found in dry places, especially near the coast.  The flowers have numerous light purple petals (technically staminodes). It is occasionally confused with C. edulis, which has large yellow flowers, C. aequilateralis, which does not have white bases on the "petals", and Disphyma crassifolia, which has smaller, rounded leaves.
