we still had this discussion in this year:
it is Harpullia pendula or H. arborea, but it is in all gardens wrongly labelled as Sapindus indica, but the name Sapindus indicus exists as a Synonym of Sapindus saponaria.[/i]

Both are present in Malta: Carpobrotus edulis var. rubescens is widely distributed, the yellow Carpobrotus edulis is rare, the extremely similar C. acinaciformis is very rarely grown. Distinguish: The leaf widens above the middle - the leaf is widened at the base.
