Thank you.🌺

I got these starts from someone and in 1 season they filled the space rapidly. I never expected them to grow so well and I'm impressed. I'm in zone 6b.

Yes, most likely a Delosperma or closely related species. Probably Delosperma nubigenum. They tend not to flower as much, especially when they go wild like in that pic. The soil is way to fertile for it to grow as it should. On the plus side, the garden should have very nice color in the fall.

I thought it was very beautiful. I thought it was supposed to grow like that. 😳.

My ground is TOO fertile?

(These had yellow flowers.)

Not necessarily too fertile to grow, just to grow as it would normally. Fertilize almost anything too much and it will put on a lot of fast green growth and little or no flowers. D. nubigenum is an alpine plant, native to rocky, mineral soils with very little fertility. You may find that it will have trouble wintering over well, partly due to the fertile soil and partly due to wet winters (if you have them). They are very sensitive to winter moisture.

We have freezing wet winters. If it dies back hopefully it grows fast enough to make a come back. It's very pretty.
