Hawaiian Roadside Succulents


Turns out it isn’t such a successful idea after all.

The (Hawaii) DOT… consider(ed) using the “ice plant”… which had (been) used (in California) along its roadsides.

The plant, originally from South Africa, proved to be highly invasive, forcing CalTrans to spend millions of dollars removing it…

Generally, the succulents and cactuses considered for use along state roadways do poorly when it comes to preventing erosion, he said.

However, the future of the barren roadsides is not necessarily bleak.

Think native plants.

That’s certainly reasonable.
