strong afternoon sun groundcover

folks -

I'm interested in groundcovers that can accept 5 - 6 hours of strong afternoon sun. I had tested some pachysandra in this location, and it's not doing nearly as well as the pachy in the shade. I am worried that Vinca will suffer the same fate. Any thoughts? Thanks very much.

RE: strong afternoon sun groundcover

Geranium 'Biokovo' and 'Karmina'can take full sun, though they get a little raggedy in late winter. G. maccrorhyzum may also do well in a lot of sun. Several groundcover sedums are evergreen and love full sun--I'm working on memory here, but I think S. kamschaticum is one of them.
