Groundcover plants are a great quick-fix solutions for many landscape problems. Groundcovers can help control erosion, cover areas that regular sod will not grow in, enhance a hillside while still complementing your home and garden. Some are evergreen, while others lose their foliage in winter.
Lemon Coral Sedum
This creeping perennial herb makes a beautiful ground cover with deep, lavender-red blooms. Perfect for filling between stepping stones, as it will tolerate light foot traffic and has a wonderful fragrance when leaves are crushed. Adds elegance to mixed beds or pots when allowed to trail over the edges.
Snow N' Summer Asiatic Jasmine
This robust, woody, vine-like evergreen makes a beautifully colored groundcover or container plant with new leaves that emerge striking pink then turn white as they age and mature leaves that are variegated white and emerald green. Produces small, very fragrant, tubular, creamy yellow flowers
The old standard in groundcovers. This vine spreads out up to six feet wide and stays less than one foot tall. Great up under oak trees or on hillsides. Very drought tolerant once established. Stays green year-round.
One of our favorite plants. Hardly ever has to be watered. Loves the sun and hot weather. Does great in pots or as a groundcover. Will die back in winter but come back out during the spring.
Dwarf Mondo Grass
This dwarf variety, only half the size of others, creates a lush groundcover of dense, dark green, grass-like clumps. Excellent as an edging plant or tucked into rocks for a pleasing contrast. Striking in mass plantings in the landscape. Evergreen. It can take full sun or full shade.
Procumbens Nana Juniper
A dense mound of ground-hugging branches that radiate from the center. the bright green new growth turns a handsome blue-green as it matures. Winter color has a purple tinge. A wonderful evergreen for a group planting on a rocky slope, or trained into an upright staked specimen. Foliage and form are superb when left unpruned. Stays less than one foot tall and 3-4 feet wide.
