There is a "purpurea" form now around. Its older growth assumes a burgundy tinge. The flowers are white. The foliage grows more compact in full sun. In shade, Creeping Boobialla tends to stretch out & flower less profusely.

I covered a large area of my yard with only 3 or 4 plants from a 4" pot. After a year or two, they spread out and filled in beautifully. They even survived the first summer our son was born and the backyard only got watered 3 or 4 times. They propagate very easily - I stuck trimmings in a pot of soil and kept it watered and gave the pot to a friend who easily transplanted them into her yard. It isn't meant to be walked on, but has stood up to toddler exploration.
A rather neat, fine textured ground cover which stays nice and low. It is not nearly as gaudy as Delosperma cooperi is (which may be a pro or con depending upon your opinion), and seems to have a neater appearance as well. The flowers are a nice touch, but not particularly spectacular.

This is a very fast growing groundcover and can eventually spread to around 4.5 to 5.5 metres wide. It's foliage is very fine and pink flowers that appear to be star shaped appear in spring through to summer. A good plant for coastal gardens and for growing under trees. This plant also tolerates drought and frost. A good native from southern Australia. pokerboy.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
