Need help indentifying two mat forming plants

Hello again everyone image Here are a further two plants from market stall unlabelled, the one with a lighter green foliage gives light white/pink flower. The darker green one gives red/yellow flowers. Since buying them the lighter green colour one seems to go a little limp sometimes and be going yellowish on the tops of the leaves. The darker green one doesn't look like its suffering but it's just not growing at all, or doesn't seem like it. The weather here in England is so mood swingy lately though so I'm feeling this is impacting such plants. Though if I knew the names I could then look them up and make sure I'm caring for them correctly. The lighter green colour one has about 4 buds on that I can see. I just wish I could stop it from going limp and yellow tinged

Thanks so much Nenah

    Yellowness is sometimes the result of too much water. Sometimes it happens if a plant is too big for its pot. I'd tip it out and have a look at the roots. See if they look and smell OK and not waterlogged. See if they look cramped and need a bigger pot.

  • Thank you love I have got on with that today. Does anyone know what they are called?

    Thanks so much

    I dont know what they are called, they look the same to me and the darker ones looks to have mould fungus on? Maybe its just the way the light is catching it.

    I am sure someone will know,I have bumped it up to the top again for you.

    But you haven't got it too wet have you? Manyof that type of plant like it gritty and dry.

    The top one has a sort of over-watered damp look.
