Groundcovers are indispensable for every garden. They fill in spaces between plants and give your garden a finished look. Imagine sweet woodruff growing among hostas, for example.
There are groundcovers for both sun and shade. Ivy, vinca, wintercreeper, and pachysandra are reliable standbys for shade. If you have a sunny spot where the soil isn’t the greatest, any number of sedums will introduce a solid carpet of drought-tolerant, almost evergreen plants, and they bloom. Flowers may be pink, dark rose, yellow or white.
Other groundcovers worth seeking out are creeping phlox, creeping thyme, creeping Jenny, lamium, tiarella, and more. Come check us out. We might even have a surprise or two.
