31/08/19 - an entire bank on a coastal hill of a succulent type plant which I think is Carpobrotus edulis- none of it was flowering but it covered a large area! #carpobrotus #carpobrotusedulis #carpobrotus-edulis #hottentotfig #holidayfind #greece 🇬🇷 #notmygarden

It was quite something to see so much of it growing on the hillside 😲 @angiie

Oh that’s a shame Lin - I wonder how it would do in the U.K.? I heard about a similar plant (May even be the same) that is quite invasive on the south coast which they have to regularly remove large chunks of now to control it. @linfoster

@linfoster Was curious and just checked google under Cornwall invasive coastal plants - it is this one! 🙈 seems to do very well in the U.K. 😲 probably was a good thing then that your bit didn’t survive as they are trying to clear large areas of it in Cornwall and south coast - http://www.nonnativespecies.org/factsheet/factsheet.cfm?speciesId=669
