What an amazing group of plants! There are varieties for deep shade as well as full sun. Most ground covers are short and some are flat enough that they can be stepped on (Wooly Thyme or Creeping Veronica). They can be used to put between pavers or stepping stones, stabilize a bank, fill in around bulbs, as a borders, or in place of a lawn. For sun we love the different varieties of thymes and sedums, for shade we recommend Lamium and Sweet Woodruff. Sun Valley Garden Center carries hundreds of ground covers, and our friendly staff can recommend the right species for your needs!
