Looking for a good idea for some low growing, evergreen groundcover. Any ideas?
So you have sun or shade, or combo?
One nice groundcover for sun or partial shade is Rubus calycinoides (a.k.a. R. pentalobus, creeping raspberry).
The small leaves have an interesting rough texture and turn burgundy red in fall.
I have full sun with the exception of the area around the JM
Alot of creeping sedums keep their leaves all winter and some turn lovely shades of red to purple during the winter.
How low is low? I've been thinking of Gro-Low Sumac for a slope I have that is now covered with scary weeds and 5' high poison ivy. Everyone that has it really likes it. One plant is supposed to grow about 3' high and about 8' wide. It's tolerant of poor soil conditions; covered in little yellow flowers in late spring; shiny, dark green foliage in summer; orange, red, and burgundy foliage in the fall.
It's sounds like a really, really wide shrub that works as a groundcover.
