This spring I bought a pretty pink ice plant listed as a perennial at the local nursery. It was and is doing great in my perennial bed and then I was told last week that they had been marked wrong and that ice plants aren't perennials. HOWEVER, I noticed a previous question in the library on this site that said they were used for ground cover. Which is true?

Ice plant is used as a perennial groundcover in the south western states, such as California and Arizona, where winters are warm. In your gardening region, ice plant will be an annual.
