Aizoaceae ... (Delonix recognition :o)) (Aizoaceae)

Well, this is another huge weed... they grow at the beach...up to the cliffs, and all over if you don't cut them down....
I'm not sure if it is some kind of portulacae

It just looks pretty for me, although is a weed :o)
I wish I could have a house at the beach with a garden covered with those :o)

I have it in a pot. It's not a weed here. It would get killed in the winter.

wow... are you sure is the same plant... (of course you are...!!! you're the expertise :o)
You wouldn't believe the way they grow at the beach here.... they cover everything

I'm no expert.. lol... It just reminds me of it because I have one :o)

LOL!!! well, I took one from the sand and planted in a pot... let's see if it grows properly... I even brought some sand and seawater to the compost :o)

Aleyna:

Ice plant is a weed here also...it grow everywhere...because it's so, so drought
resistant.

It's in the Aizoaceae family. : > )

Aleyna:

I try. LOL! I know most of the Ice plant-type plants...because most are so widely grown throughout California. : > )

Delonix,
These ice plants seems to like ocean shores.

Aleyna:

Most species are native to areas not too far the ocean...in drier climates of the World.

I brought some and planted in a pot... let's see how it will feel living 100km far from ocean shore and in the 9th floor...

i couldnt i'd winge about the heat more than i winge about the cold...lol

Sandra is right, it grows wild on cliffs in the southwest of Cornwall. It looks great. I have tried growing it in London but the first frost kills it.

LOL Sandra... south Brazil is not that bad... we even have 2 inches of snow in winter, when we get lucky.... :o)))))

Rbtkew... I'll probably have the opposite problem...brouht some to try grow it myself... in a pot... afraid the summer will kill it...we will see :o)

it should be fine Alyena it loves it dry and hot...u surprise me that u get snow... we are on the south west of the UK in Wales. we have a small amout of snow now and then.

Sandra:

I don't think Aleyna's city in Brazil receives snow...I believe she said it's in the higher mountains. Here in the San Diego County Mountains...it snows above 4,500 feet a couple times a year in winter also.

With the many tropical plants and trees growing in Aleyna's city...they would all die if it snowed or had frost.

Sandra and Delonix,
I wrote a blog with our snow... :o)
LOL!!!
