Beautiful beautiful higo

A friend who is visiting us at the moment showed us his collection of photographs from a holiday last autumn in South Africa. And there, unmistakeably, was the pink-flowering higo del mar. higo - flowering1 1-5-13Also known as ‘the ice plant’, its latin name is ‘carpobrotus edulis’ and it is native to South Africa. We grow it on our hillside as it is excellent at binding the soil, and is self-rooting. And best of all, the bees love the bright pink flowers. higo - flowering2 1-5-135 to remember
