Mesembryanthemum spp

This time of year in South Australia you see blazes of orange, red and pink Mesembryanthemum flowers in sunny positions in various gardens.  These are plants from Europe and Africa which have naturalised in southern parts of Australia and they are available at most garden centres.  These succulents thrive on virtually no water so they're ideal for sunny patches in the garden that don't get watered very often.  And they grow very easily from cuttings in moist sand.
