Recommendation for ground cover for mostly shady, moist soil
I have a moist area at the far end of my backyard that faces north and is next to a fence. The area is moist because my yard slopes down gently from my house to the fence. This area is behind some shrubs like Invincible Hydrangeas, as well as trees like Bakeri spruce and Mountain Pine.
Right now, this area is a magnet for weeds and I am so sick of pulling them out from this area! I am hoping that if I grow some ground cover there, it would choke out or even stop the weeds from getting there.
Since this is a mostly shaded and rather moist area, what ground cover would grow there in my zone 3 yard? So far, I have considered the following:
1. Lamium Golden Anniversary - I love lamium but doesn't it dislike wet soil?
2. Sweet Woodruff - I love this thing! I saw this in the Botanical Garden in St. John's, NL, and I fell in love with it. The leaves are gorgeous and the dainty white flowers are just charming. Would this do well in this area?
What else would you recommend for this area please? I am hoping that it will be something that will cover up this area fairly quickly, without being too aggressive.
Thanks in advance!
