Low growing, non invasive, non vining ground cover
Well it is almost time to think of gardening again. Of course I know that some of you think of it all the time....lol.
I need a good low growing, low maintainance, non vining ground cover to plant under a circle of red tipped photinias in my back yard. The spot is mostly shady but in summer can get late afternoon to evening sun in spots.
I know I do not want vinca, English Ivy, or other hard to maintain types.
I do love Pachysandra but is a bit slow and I need something a little faster to fill in the area.
No monkey grass please.
It would be great if it were evergreen but not a must.
I have tried hostas in the spot and they got a little too much sun and didn't do well because I had them on the outer edges of the circle.
I am at a loss as to what to try next. But my bare spot gets a little larger each year it seems so would be nice to find something.
If I can't find the right plants I may just have to resort to putting in landscape rock or something.
I need to mention that I need something with smallish roots....this space is around my electric posts due to us having a double lot the utility posts are in my backyard. So will have to be very careful digging and can't dig more than a couple of inches.
A Challenge huh?
Any ideas anyone?
BTW Hello Dawn! How are you and the tomatoes doing?
