karkalla or pig face, beach succulent

These lovely flowers cover the slopes of the sandy beach at Muriwai. They start off as a yellow flower, then turn orange and then pink. Someone told me that these beach succulents play a very important role in preventing erosion.

Carpobrotus rossii, commonly known as karkalla or pig face, is a succulent coastal groundcover plant native to southern Australia. K
