Carpobrotus rossil commonly known as karkalla or pig face is a succulent coastal groundcover plant native to southern Australia. Karkalla leaves are succulent, curved and rarely straight. The flowers are light purple in colour and 6 cm wide. The globular purplish red fruit is about 2.5cm in length and 1.5cm in width. It can be found year-round in large patches covering sand dunes close to the ocean, due to its hardy nature and salt resistance.
