James if blue is colour you want consider lithordora heavenly blue.  It's evergreen, tough amd has gentian blue flowers in spring and summer. It has a liking for acid soils but I grow it here perfectly well on my neutral soil.  

As already,said Mesembryanthemums are not really hardy in most places....they are here......and need perfect drainage.

Yep, crowbar may be useful.  Good strong spade digging deeply amd thoroughly.  You say you don't have much room for a spade but a spade will be needed.  A pickaxe in the centre of,the clump to gain access
