Suggestions for groundcovers in zone 5 that will cover rock?
Hi -- We live south of Pueblo at about 5500 feet, have a yard that's 2 years old. We have 13 trees and many small shrubs in the front yard, planted on berms with small rock covering the berms to keep foxes from digging up the irrigation lines (which they did every night before we put down the rock). What we wanted was a foresty look. Can you suggest what groundcover we might plant that would cover the rock berms and the paths between the berms? It would have to be able to survive pretty hot sun on those rocks in the summer, but we'd like something that would look as much like a forest floor as possible. We were considering ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea) but are afraid it would take too much water. It's very invasive in our back yard, but is much more shaded there. Thank you very much.
