What is the variegated trailing plant?
I would like to learn more about this trailing plant.
It has a variegated leaf, trails over the pot and has a pink flower.
Hi Wendy, this is a great little plant. I've tracked it down for you with some information, as I have no personal experience with it.
This page on Dave's Garden Website has some information on this plant, which is known as Heartleaf Ice Plant, Heart Leaf Ice Plant, Baby Sunrose, and also the correct botanical name of Aptenia cordifolia 'Variegata'.
This page has more about the non-variegated form, and more growing tips and interesting anecdotes about it.

Green and white succulent plant with mini hot pink flowers
I have a plant that I purchased at a department store this spring that was part of variety plantar.
The names of the plants were not listed.
I am looking for the name of the green and white plant, not the silver one.
The other plants in the container have since died but this variegated one grew very well.
It is short and compact.
It contains green and white almost rubbery leaves and it has mini hot pink flowers.
It grew very well in the heat.
I have searched and have not been able to find anything like it. Please help!
Hi Diane, luckily, a previous visitor to the site asked me about this plant, so I know the name, although not much else about it. You can see more here: What is the Variegated Trailing Plant?.

thick and succulent looking leaves
The leaves are succulent (so it seemed) and sort of thick; they were green with some white in them and had very small dark red flowers - almost brush like flowers - it looked very sturdy.
Hi Witchhazel, this is a cute little plant called Aptenia cordifolia - there is also a plain green non-variegated type, but the one with the white streaks is really pretty.
These little guys make a great hanging basket if they have several cuttings in the basket, and once they get long enough to trail, those hot pink blooms open.
You can see more about it here: Aptenia cordifolia.
Hope that helps with your pretty plant,
