Carpobrotus, commonly knows as pigface, is a genus of ground-creeping plants with bright daisy-like flowers in the spring belonging to the Aizoaceae. They usually have short, fleshy gray-green leaves, produce edible fruit and are sometimes used medicinally. They make a beautiful feature in the garden due to their striking bright coloured flowers that are usually trailing in rock gardens or pruned into mounds. Pigfaces are hardy, drought-tolerant and are easy to maintain.
