Ice Plant Carpobrotus edulis
is planted along scenic Highway 1, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, to help slow cars down if they drift off the road (at least that's what I heard!). I'm not sure I'd want to trust it to stop my car from careening off one of those cliffs! The leaves are thick and succlent. There is a pink-flowered type that has icy-looking, liquid filled leaves.
