Description

Scattered mats of this plant are common on the dunes at Salinas River State Beach. It was differentiated from the very similar C. chilenensis by the sharp edged succulent leaves (vs. more rounded edges) with slight serration to the abaxial edge near the tip. The flowers are also more pinkish than the magenta of C. chilenesis.
