Plant I-D

Might I suggest that if you want similar tight growing plants, that you look for Rosularia. These are related to Sedums, but are a lot less prone to ramp.

 

The Sedum spath is S.s. William Pascoe. I went and found it in the garden.

Sedum spathulifolium Cape Blanco. And there are a couple of other cultivars of this species too. S.s purpureum and S.s aureum and a very rare one called S.S.s. William Rollinson (or something like that, without going and finding the label in the garden).

First one is a paeony.  The next ones look like bulbs. final one could be Kerria, but that is a guess.

Check in the compost for Vine weevil grubs. They eat the roots of Strawberries. Otherwise it sounds like you may have over watered it in winter when it was dormant.

Basically anywhere where the flowers are not hit by the sun when there is frost on them.

At that depth you would need 2.25 cubic metres of dressing. Though as said, that depth would kill the grass.

C. flexuosa is always blue or blue and white, never purple or pink. It is also does not grow from a corm, rather it has scaly roots which is what makes it easy to propagate from division. Also it grows over Winter then dies down in mid-summer and starts again in autumn. C. solida ( and others) grow from corms. They begin in Spring, flower and set seed and have disappeared by early summer. They are a bit like Crocus and Snowdrops in that respect.
