Considered to be a coastal invader which can choke out other native plants and alter the soil, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife suggests not planting the species, and removing it whenever possible. A drive along the Sonoma County coast last weekend, in hazy morning light, made that reasonable explanation and request very difficult to support.

  1. Years ago my sister was driving home from U C Santa Barbara and fell asleep on the road. The ice plant that her car drifted into saved herr from going over the cliff. Ever since, I have looked fondly on the vegetation.
    Glad you had that getaway.
