Browsing: Aizoaceae

Aizoaceae is a a very large family of dicotyledonous flowering plants containing 135 genera and about 1900 species, largely endemic to Southern Africa. A few species are found in Australia and the Pacific area. They are commonly known as stone plants or carpet weeds. Species that resemble stones or pebbles are sometimes called Mesembs. Several species are known as "ice plants" because of the glistening globular bladder cells covering their stems, fruit and leaves.
