Help identifying flowers from France #1


By Barcar

Can anybody help me identify this flower from a sunny French seaside garden (West coast)?

It had purple daisy-like flower with thin petals. Closed up in the evening. Low spreading plant. Thick "juicy" leaves.





It looks like a type of delosperma but I would need to see the shape of the leaf to be sure. It could also be a lampranthus.

Looking at images on other websites it sounds like Delosperma Cooperi. Didn't quite look like the other one to me. Thank you very much for your help!

Is it a mesembrianthemum? They open in the sun and close up again at night? They come in lovely bright colours.

Think it is Lampranthus...Barcar....I had these in my garden when we were in Spain.
