Ideas for groundcover under sweet gum w/exposed roots?
Hi there, everyone. Another newbie question for ya'll. I just moved into a new house with a huge old sweet gum tree in the front yard. The roots are really exposed & basically my whole front yard is roots & shade (& sticker grass, yuck). I'm looking for ideas for a rapidly spreading good groundcover that will work underneath, in the shallow soil available under the tree.
My mom has some Commelina cyanea, with the blue flowers, that I was thinking of taking cuttings off of & attempting to root. Does anyone have experience with this? They look like Wandering Jew & are very similar, from what I can gather. Thoughts?
