Taken at Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka on the 18th of November, 2010. Nuwara Eliya is at 1892 meters above sea level.

I think this  is a kind of “ice plant”,  which also have daisy like flowers; Aizoaceae, one of the cylindrical leaved species of Mesembryanthemum or Delosperma.

Yes … is correct, the flowers represent Aizoaceae, and not Crassulaceae or Asteraceae.

The flower size however, seems to be larger than 1 inch in diameter. In Delosperma the flowers are 1/2 to 3/4 inch across.  
I suppose it represents Lampranthus multiradiatus.

Kindly help with identification of this Cultivated Succulent.

a ground cover  for xeriscaping, esp along the highways in sw usa

pinkish or purple ice plant 2with rounded tip to the ?leaves

you’ll run into a lot of species names

run the key

many things are called the purple iceplant
but many have thin blades or pointed ends to their leaves … yours seems to be like the perfectly rounded succulent leaf tip..

most likely would be Drosanthemum Floribundum Rosea

however do run the key and if you have more pictures that would help you.

and let me know what you decide …

Thank you for another unknown succulent. I agree with the genus, can’t say about the species.

I think my plant has been wrongly identified.
I have posted it in another thread as Lampranthus roseus? It should be L. roseus or L. multiradiatus or L. productus.
