This is a type of ground cover on my hillside. The leaves are very blue in color in the direct sunlight, and they have purple flowers in May. I'm wondering if I should leave this in place or clear it out to make way for my very successful creeping phlox.

Welcome!

Its some kind of Dianthus.

Thanks so much Daisyl. I have Dianthus gratianopolitanus "Firewitch" (which I like better than Cheddar Pink). Just because I can call it Firewitch I'm keeping this on the slope, the creeping phlox will just have to creep another direction.

Thank You!
