I am looking for ideas for a good, thick growing (keep out weeds) ground cover for a sunny, dry (no irrigation) location . I live in Homestead. I am thinking about Nephrolepis varieties perhaps. The location is in full sun all day. Any and all suggestions appreciated.
Suggestions for a good ground cover for a sunny, dry local
lantana might work nicely. the trailing lantana seems to bloom more when it's somewhat cooler and dry.
Ornamental Peanuts. I have this in a big patch of my front yard in Jacksonville. It has pretty little yellow flowers and never needs mowing. You can actually run over it with a lawnmower and it's so low the blade doesn't touch it.
I got mine at Maggie's Herbs close to St Augustine.
They said it was also a pest cure for lice on birds. The birds sort of wallow in it if they have lice.
I haven't seen any birds doing that, but they may not have lice. LOL
Anyhow it's a great ground cover.
those are great too, they get walked on and continue blooming. and it does spread fast
