Anyone know what this succulent is? I was thinking I had seen a picture of a type of ice plant that was not hardy and looked similar but can't find it now....

Thanks Rosemarie!
Also called Baby Sun Rose.....hardy to 23 degrees F. Well, that's not "hardy" for my yard.

There are different colors of this ice plant. I have seen a red, purple, and crme or yellow variety. Here is a picture with the red & one purple flower (other ice plants/succulents are mixed in).

There is a picture of the white variety at this link evidentially it originated from Israel. It is not as hardy as the red.
