Description

Rounded Noon Flower is a succulent spreading plant which can form dense carpets of stunning colour. The bright green, cylindrical leaves are often flushed with red, yellow or purple and the shining pink flowers have a crisp white centre.

Rounded Noon Flower is useful for stabilising soil erosion, especially in saline areas. The usually bright-green leaves change to orange or purple in differing salt levels. It is very useful in coastal areas under revegetation.
