Red Pigface Flower, (Carpobrotus rossii) Cactus
Photo taken in my garden in Diamond Creek, Melbourne.
As of 21/Aug/2010
These flowers grow well in coastal areas. The reason these flowers were given this common name was because of the resemblance of the flower to a pigs face. I dont see it.
Grows in full sun. Colours, – all shades of bright red, pink and orange.
