Ice Plant, good or bad for erosion?

panamamikeMay 4, 2010

I came across an article mentioning that ice plants are bad for erosion control.

http://www.laspilitas.com/garden/howto/slope.html

I had actually planted some because I found links saying it was good for erosion control.

Anyone know why they would have been recommended, but now are not?

Is it a matter of variety?
