It's a succulent, probably in the Aizoaceae, but darned if I can remember the name. It should be planted in free draining soil, with no moss and not standing in water. They tend to rot easily if kept wet.

It's not a forest group but a Ikadabuki Style of Rhododendron.
Accent plant is Delosperma lineare.

Hi John, great pics. Thanks for persisting, we were having a lot of problems with the pics management when the new server was being brought online. Hopefully sorted now.

Hi Nicolas, that raft Rhododendron is lovely. Thanks for the ID on the succulent.
