The good news is that ice plant grows rapidly. The bad news is that you'll probably have to keep the weeds pulled until the groundcover fills in and chokes out the weeds. Hand pulling is best, but if you're careful you can try to spot treat the weeds with something like Safer's Sharp Shooter. While the product is environmentally friendly, it's still an herbicide and can damage your new ice plants if it gets on them.
