Sour Fig

A little while ago I did a post on the Natal Creeping Fig with its purple flowers. In that post I mentioned that it is related to the Sour Fig (Carpobrotus edulis). I found a Sour Fig the other day and took some photos of it to show you what it looks like as well.

  1. These are really pretty. I have planted some in the plant boxes near my front door. I do hope they're going to grow. I believe they're quite hardy, which for me, is a good thing!!

  2. Ah!! I love the summer when everything starts to bloom. The problem is there are so many beautiful eye-catching things to take pictures of, I usually do not get very far on a walk. :)
