Trailing or spreading ground cover type for Calif. low desert

toffee-el(Z8b Sunset Z13 Elev 4650ft)October 17, 2012

I am converting a concrete in ground spa into a pond. I would like to get some bog plants that can spread out to cover the concrete surrounding area to give it a more natural look.

I am in So Cal low desert, near Palm Springs. Any suggestions?

Mazus reptans, perhaps? Or one of the creeping thymes, if it is to overlay a thin soil over concrete. (I know it's not boggy, as such, but it might work for you.)
