Answer: Delosperma cooperi (ice plant) is a great plant for the conditions you described (sunny, dry, sandy soil), but it is only hardy to 0F unless mulched heavily in winter. Since you're in Albany County, I'm assuming the winter temperatures get much belowzero, so unless you are willing to protect it, it probably wouldn't be a good choice. You may want to try Ajuga instead. It grows well in full sun, is low growing and once established, will do okay in dry areas. Just give it plenty of water, if Mother Nature doesn't, the first year.
