Carpobrotus edulis!

This is a totally different species in the Aizoaceae family from S.Africa that is very invasive and thrives by the sea in many parts of the UK.It has very thick triangular leaves, and will grow right on the edge of the sea and on cliffs.
Erigeron glaucus is also introduced (from N. America)and also thrives by the sea.

Oooops

Still learning to navigate around this site and I suspect that I have inadvertently agreed that this is C. edulis which it most definitely is not. Indeed, most C. edulis identifications on this site are currently incorrect. As a brief look at the linked E.O.L site will confirm. Cheers.
