What groundcover to plan between stone walk?
I just finished a stone slab walkway, in which I was originally going to lay river rock in between all of the stones.Now I think it's too much rock and would like to plant ground cover in between them instead.So, a few questions...
Can I plant ground cover in the fall and will it survive our harsher winters and warm, dry summers here in the Columbia Gorge? We live in White Salmon, just across the columbia river from Hood River. In the winter we get the rains from the west but also the cold temps from the dessert. In the summer, heat and wind.
If I can plant ground cover now, would it be possible to buy it in seed or is there someplace online I could buy it in bulk? I can't find any at local nurseries or home depot.
Lastly, what kind of ground cover would be good? The area is under a big Japanese Maple, gets lots of shade with northern exposure, but some late afternoon sun. No grass as we don't want to mow. Something low and creeping that can take foot traffic!
