Hi, I just moved from a zone 4 to a zone 8 and it feels a bit like starting over, plus I'd like to know about some of the options available now that weren't before! So I'm looking for a ground cover that has the following characteristics:
grows quickly (not too invasive), hearty, low water needs, longest growing season possible, flowers for as long as possible, low height, doesn't sap nutrients for other plants. Am I asking too much?
Thanks for your help.

RE: groundcove

Yes you are. I am not familiar with Zone 8, but flowering plants need water. You might want to look at juniper, Blue Pacific doesn't get much higher then 12"'BluePacific'.htm
or Euonymous "Emerald Gaiety which in most instances doesn't get much higher than 12" "
