Hi, I have a small back garden with a very small brick patio and flower beds on the sides. I wanted to put in irregular flagstone or stepping stones in the center between the beds, with a low-growing groundcover. Does anyone have any suggestions? Ideally I'd want something that either doesn't flower or flowers early enough that bees wouldn't be a problem for the summer. The area is mostly sunny to partial shade. Thank you. BTW, I'm in zone 5, east central Illinois.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
