looking for groundcover for shady area
I have a sloped backyard facing north in Kansas City. There is about 20' of yard, then a limestone retaining wall then woods. I have a 12' wide deck almost the length of the house. As you can imagine the back yard gets very little sunlight. I've been trying to get various ground covers to grow and have had mixed results. Ive tried planting english and ajuga. The ivy is doing ok, but the ajuga didnt fair well. I also have some hostas and ferns that are doing ok. What I really want is a low growing ground cover that does well in shady areas that would take over the yard. Any suggestions?
