Ground cover to control weeds and to prevent palms from uprooting

Could someone recommend the very best nursery ground cover to control weeds, which lets water, air, fertilizers and nutrients through, resists mildew and rotting, and prevents palms from uprooting from pots to the ground and which would be sun resistant and last at least 5 years?

Vinca vines work well for me and the variegated ones are really nice looking and mostly evergreen. I almost consider them weeds though because although they look nice, they are invasive. Variegated vinca vines look their best in shade, but I have a group in ALL day sun and they look good too, the leaves are just a little bit smaller and more compact (but the leaves are much bigger than the more common perrenial vincas).
Good luck!
