need heat tolerant, water loving groundcover
Hi everyone! I guess I posted this in the wrong forum first LOL They directed me over here.
I need a ground cover that is heat tolerant (So. Cal) BUT it also needs to tolerate a fair amount of water - the people who planted that area of the garden were kind of clueless, putting Ice Plants next to a big bushy rose bush.
I don't care about flowering, I just need something to send roots into the berm to keep it in place. Right now I have Ice Plants, the Disneyland variety, and they are dying from *too much* water, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to reset my sprinkler system to water that area less - the front yard and that side of the house are connected on the same valve so unless I hire someone to come in and monkey around with the valves... which I won't do because we only rent
any suggestions? When we lived in Washington State, I LOVED New Zealand Brass Buttons, would they work here ? A Succulent would probably be a good idea, but I am clueless.
Thanks so much,
