Two plants spring to mind but I don't lnow the name of either one.
Both are succulents that spread like wildfire.
The first has the most brilliant magenta or Yellow flowers about 3 inches in diameter, in May. The biggest drawback is that it only flowers for one month. It has fleshy leaves about 3 inches long and 1/4 inch wide. It's evergreen.

The second one has much smaller leaves and tiny scarlet flowers that cover the plant from early spring to the first frost.

Both are very fast growing and easy to propagate. I have trouble disposing of all the cuttings so you are more than welcome to as much of it as you want.

If Zujar is too far to travel then I could bring a bagful to the carboot in Baza - Hotel Abadi on sunday.
