Delosperma, ice-plants and others

In Australia for some reason this group of succulents are referred to as "Pigface"! I think it has something to do with the appearance of the fruits, especially on Carpobrotus.
These are some seedlings of Delosperma cooperi hybrids or selections

Mesembryanthemum are another genus widely grown in Australia especially on embankments.
These are growing on the edge of a bulb bed and the mix of colours is due to self-seeding,
