Hybridization between the non-native succulent Carpobrotus edulis
for one, as it is an excellent spreading ground-cover plant.
Approximately 40 students from the Universities of Montana and Utah recently spent a day on iceplant (Carpobrotus edulis
) control at the Lanphere Dunes Unit of Humboldt Bay NWR as part of their week-long alternative spring break program, "Breakaway." They also worked a day under Pickart's direction on the control of eastern beachgrass (Ammophila breviligulata), another non-native plant.
To ready the overgrown hillside for new plaintings, they removed existing big-leaf ice plant (Carpobrotus edulis
) over a period of six months; taking it out all at once could have led to erosion or soil slippage during heavy rains.
, better known as Aphrodite's Tresses here, but more widely known as the Hottentot fig, is another good plant.
Just feel the weight of a stem of Carpobrotus edulis
and you will see what I mean.
Agaves tend to close up their outer leaves in order to save the inner ones and Carpobrotus edulis
, the Hottentot fig, may need some dried up leaves and stems pruned off and will start to grow and fill out again quite quickly.
