|This ground cover seems to be thriving in full sun after a relatively wet fall and winter. This is in zone 10a San Diego. |

|Possibly Delosperma cooperi|
I'm not sure about the hairy stems on yours ..
Flowers will help.

That could be correct, I found some photos which have hairy stems but others have different leaves. It seems some are wrongly named, so we need to find a reliable source.
Calflora should be correct, the leaves are quite different on Drosanthemum hispidum..
I know this seller would name their plants correctly, the leaves match those on calflora, they are pointed with edges.
So, what are the ones with hairy stems?

Delosperma cooperi (Purple Ice Plant) ...... though it is typically a more purple color as should not be confused in Southern California with the very common Rosea Ice Plant or Pink Ice Plant, Drosanthemum floribundum.

|Drosanthemum floribundum certainly has the hairy stems ..|

|Drosanthemum floribundum I think is your plant ..|
Very pretty too! The flowers are so similar to one I grew from seed, it survived for several years, Delosperma ecklonis var. latifolia but the foliage is a little different.
