This is a type of mesembryanthemum, grown widely in Spain to cover walls, terraces and to have in pots, very beautiful jewel like colours,there is a branching upright type or trailing type, all are small plants but the trailers look stunning hanging over a wall, I had many colours of these in my Spanish garden.

WHAT IS IT THEN mesembryanthemum OR Lampranthus?

Yes celandine you're right, I've had a look at lampranthus on the net and these are the same lovely plants I had. The local garden centre in Catalunya where I bought my original plants had them labelled as Mesems, but this was probably a local term. Definitely Lampranthus Bazza7777!

We need a close up to see the white spots! Mine only had about two flowers and then gave up!
