I think that would be a wonderful idea!!! Let me know how it goes...I want to transplant some of mine to a new area in my garden.

hi..any other ideas for me for a ground cover...have been thinking about lemon thyme or maybe vinca minor for between the stones

How about Creeping Jenny?? Mine is lime green and adds a rich texture to the garden. You might have to uncover the stepping stones occasionally, though!!

Also try Mazus Reptans....it works in full or part sun and shade too! It has a fine texture similar to the Blue Star Creeper with purple flowers in early summer. I have pictures of both posted on PDB!
