I saw this ground cover in the neighborhood and would like to know the name. I am looking for a ground cover for full afternoon sun in Dallas, TX (zone 8). Thank you.

The blade of a hand shovel is shown on the right for sizing the plant. It is only 2-3 inches thick, hugging the ground, on the north side of yard. It looks like a succulent but not as thick as ice plant.

My old eyes are having trouble with your photo, but possibly Jupiter communis
or Juniper horizontalis
or a variety of either?

Even if your photo is of something else, a creeping juniper might still suit your groundcover needs?

It's difficult for my old eyes to tell for sure but it does look like some type of Juniperus. Another one for comparison is Shore Juniper (Juniperus rigida subsp. conferta)

Thank you. I started searching internet for juniper. The best match so far is green mound juniper, a type of creeping juniper.
