Perennial succulent herb. Stems are prostrate and creeping. Leaves are fleshy, < 5.5 x 4 cm and covered with small pitted dots. Flowers are pink/red, < 12 mm in diameter and held in inflorescences in spring/summer. Small plantlets develop in flower clusters following flowering.
To help protect our environment:
Coastal habitats, sand dunes, rock, cliffs, banks, rock walls, volcanic cones, riparian and forest margins.
Vegetative spread from stem nodes and plantlets. Human-mediated dispersal through deliberate planting.
Forms dense mats, preventing native regeneration. Potential for hybridisation with native Crassula spp.
Follow up treated areas 3 times per year. Encourage natural regeneration of native plants or replant treated areas where possible after 2-3 treatments to establish dense ground cover and minimise reinvasion.
CAUTION: When using any herbicide or pesticide please read the label thoroughly to ensure that all instructions and safety requirements are followed.
