Fastest growing groundcovers for warm climates?

Posted by luxrosa s.f. bay area, calif (My Page) on

I have a problem with quackgrass, and now that I've weeded much of it out, I need a groundcover to put in its' place. I live near San Francisco and would prefer something either drought tolerant or with a low water requirement, as we have 3-4 months each year of summer and autumnal drought. I have snow-in-summer and white alyssium already, but would like something that can fill in an area more quickly.

Thanks in advance,

RE: Fastest growing groundcovers for warm climates?

Hello, Luxrosa. You might consider prairie winecup (Callirhoe involucrata) or woolly speedwell (Veronica pectinata). Both are drought tolerant, especially the prairie winecup.
