Featured Photo: Crystalline Iceplant (Crystal Cove State Park; Irvine, California)
It’s glittery globes caught my eye as we hiked down a dune trail to Crystal Cove Beach in 2009. Decidedly not a plant I might find growing by my Midwestern home, I captured its details with a couple of photos for later identification. As I later found out, the crystalline iceplant didn’t exactly belong in California either. It’s considered an invasive species, better suited to its South African home. More photos and some background on both Crystal Cove and the iceplant can be found at the links below.
