Can you help me to name these plants please? Pictures 1 & 2 are the same plant.

    3 osteospemum?
    4 delospermum /ma. Does it have succulent type of stems?

    I think the top two photos are the Chilean Myrtle shrub, Luma Apiculata.

    Last photo could be Delosperma Cooperi.

    1 and 2 Looks like Mytus such as Myrtus apiculata.

    Sorry Borderline...didn't see your post.

    Yes, that's the one (1+2), with a brown bark, thank you. I am not sure if 3 is an osteospemum and the 4th is a type of succulent which can grow in the driest of conditions, but it's name escapes me.

    Is number 4 a hottentot fig?
    Tradition is just peer pressure from dead people

    No it's not that wild edges, hottentot is much thicker and more succulent than this, which I think could be a mesembreanthium perhaps.

    I think 3 is a senetti.  They probably wouldn't survive a winter outside here but down south in the Channel Islands where it's much milder, it could.
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained
