Took these photos in Chula Vista, CA, Zone 10 I believe.
Delosperma? (ice plant)
Osteospermum? (African Daisy)
Would help if closeup of the leaves were included…
It looks like someone went down to the plant store and purchased a bunch of large plants and plugged them in…
It’s an iceplant but there are many different types and botanical classification is always rather confused. They’re often just lumped under the general heading of Mesembryanthemum (you can see examples here: http://www.plantshots.com/cat1165.htm).
