Description
This pioneering plant has deep green semi-succulent leaves in pairs that form a Y-shape. The bright yellow flowers are followed by four-angled seed capsules in summer.

In late winter to early spring Coast Twinleaf produces a mass display of four-petalled yellow flowers. It creates dense mats, often in exposed coastal sites.
