Groundcover Suggestions?

realityfaerySeptember 12, 2013

Hello! I was looking for some groundcover suggestions for my area and for two different areas of the yard. I live in the Central Valley of California, so we get hot summers and cool winters. One area we would like to put groundcover is in a heavily shaded spot in the front yard. It is a flower bed under a tree, but during the fall it loses all of its leaves. So if it can take the sun during the winter or go dormant during that time would be great. The other area is in full sun, so preferably something that can take the intense heat we get here (normally goes over 100F during the summer). I would love if it either reseeds or spreads itself and evergreen, though if I really like it, I will go with an annual. Lastly, we have a tropical theme throughout both the front and back yard. Thank you!
