Would anyone know the name of this succulent variety please. I bought if from plantinspirations online nursey but because they had just gotten into stock, they did not know its name. I have seen it online as Silver Chips, but no botanical name can be found

Clearer photos would help but best guess, a Purslane. But, Plantinsprations seems to be an Austalian nusery specializing in native plants. Is that right?

Apparently Portulaca oleracea is native to Australia but that's not what you have. I was thinking more like Moss Rose.

Only other thought: Delosperma, not a native.

Are those flowers? More photos please.

Hello Daisyl,
Thank you for taking the time to reply.
The one I have is just starting to flower but still only in bud form.

Thank You!

It seems that plantinspirations online nursery sells a wide range of plants native and non.

I have spent hours trying to identify this one.

Another one I am having trouble IDing is the green one attached
Maybe a Crassula. Small green leaf leaves that turn red when stressed or in high sun position Crossing Fingers!
