What is the plant
Mesembryanthemum cordifolium is a species of succulent plant in the iceplant family. The common name is baby sun rose. It is a maintenance-free ground cover used extensively to cover banks and slopes throughout the tropics and warmer temperate areas.
Mesembryanthemum cordifolium is formerly known as Aptenia cordifolia. It comes naturally to the eastern coastal region of the Cape Province and Kruger National Park in the Transvaal, South Africa. It is widely introduced and often naturalized elsewhere in the world. It grows naturally in shady places, often under trees. It is planted in parking lot planters, parkways and home gardens, but easily it escapes from cultivation and spreads in disturbed places, on margins of coastal wetlands and on embankments along irrigation waterways.
