groundcover for sunny steep slope
I'm trying to figure out what to plant on a slope along our driveway that faces east but gets alot of midday sun. It is pretty steep and sandy and is roughly 300 x 40 feet in size. It tends to get somewhat damp in areas from runoff from the hill above but can be dry in other areas. I am looking for a groundcover that will fill in quickly and hold the sand as we are having a fair amount of erosion withthese summer storms. We are zone 5 (northern CT) and can have some pretty cold winters.
I tried wintercreeper on time, and it all died. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
