(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.
