Advise needed Fast Growing Ground cover

rob91July 17, 2012

Please advise.

I need a fast growing ground cover for a slope.

Zone 7a Full Sun. No foot traffic.

I was considering Boston Ivy, but it's too invasive.

Juniper? Euonymus?

Any suggestions?

Liriope spicata and euonymus fortunei (wintercreeper) are both fast-spreading and good in full sun on slopes. They can each be invasive but not as bad as ivy.

Euonymus, wintercreeper isn't fast growing, but is evergreen.

Sorry about that; it is indeed listed as a moderate grower, not fast-spreading.
