From these 3 photos, the identification is not certain and in fact the multi-flowering habit may indicate to be a pale variety of Disphyma crassifolium, but the slender and elongated leaves are typical of the Lampranthus. Lampranthus multiradiatus is perhaps more known under the species name of L. roseum (now a synonym).
