Ground cover for edge of pond
I'm looking for an evergreen ground cover for the edge of my 1 acre pond. The east side is sunny, and the west side is mostly shady in the afternoons. I need something that would hide a 2 inch white PVC irrigation supply pipe that circles the edge of the pond. One possibility would be to move a large batch of Liriope monkey grass that we originally originally planted as a border around a bed at the house, but has taken over the entire bed. I figure it would be less a problem if its growth is restrained by the pond on one side and the lawn mower on the other. I would prefer a native plant, but I don't know of any evergreens that would be as vigorous and would stand up to the droughts we have had the last few years in east central Alabama. Any suggestions?
