Is this an April Fool's joke?

I really don't know much about iceplants, but my Swartburg Beauty iceplant has finished flowering and the old buds now look like this:
Is it playing a joke on me? Or is it going to produce seeds?


  1. It's going to produce seeds which you should cut it off, the less you let a flower go to seed the longer they last and produce better flowers.

  2. Wow, isn't it funny how flowers bud and form? I just saw what I thought was an ice plant at Home Depot. But I looked at so many plants I can't recall what it looked like in bloom!

  3. It's cool looking. I have no clue but so I guess it's a wait and see...

  4. An April Fool's joke? or just creepy and ghosty :-)
