It is indeed but those are native forms of Carpobrotus - indigenous  
speces.
A Gondwana genus that we share with S. Africa, like the Proteacae.
Never could understand why such an attractive plant was called  
Pigface. I've spent some happy hours revegetating sand dunes with it  
as it thrives in sandy, high salt environments.
