What groundcover can I use to replicate the scene in this image?
Hello you all!
I live in Dallas TX, and I am planning to build a Japanese garden in the back yard. I already planted my Bambusa Multiplex "Alphonse Karr" by the back fence, and now I am planning on completing the garden with lots of rocks, big mounds of dirt, and gravel. Plus a little artificial river that will end into a koi pond.
This is the problem, however. I would like to recreate the effect of these dirt mounds covered with those ground covers as it is showed in this picture I found on the internet. I would like to recreate this here in TEXAS, and I know it is going to be a challenge.
Can you suggest a plant that would thrive in full sun (because this ground cover will be facing the South of the garden), that will also withstand the "exceptional drought" that Texas has been going through lately? I will obviously water the garden with a sprinkler system.
Other plants that are going to be part of the garden (that I already ordered) are the following:
3 plants of Sequoiadendron giganteum ' Pendulum '
1 plant of Weeping Cherry Snow Fountain Prunus x 'Snofozam'
3 plants of Weeping Cherry Tree Prunus subhirtella 'Pendula'
1 plant of Thuja occidentalis 'Woodwardii'
1 plant of Ann Magnolia Tree
1 plant of Cinnamon Fern
1 plant of Chinese Lantern Plant
1 plant of Hydrangea, Glowing Embers
1 plant of Hydrangea, Freedom
I need a groundcover!
