I am looking for a fast growing groundcover to put on a slope. On the slope 1/2 gets full sun while the other hlaf 1/2 gets partial shade. Luckily both halves are seperated by a step path. I would like something that blooms to add interest to the area. Any ideas?
If it is a steep slope, Crown vetch is good to prevent soil erosion. (very invasive though) otherwise, ajugas are nice, 'Burgundy Glow' ajuga is one of my favourites for part shade. It has purple and pink tones and a blue spike flower in spring.
Thank you tcs, yes it does flower( I will see if I can find a pic) but it is small and not for very long, but it is evergreen for the most part and if a spot dies, I just take from an edge that i am cutting off by the pond and replace the dead spot.
My vinca is in part shade and it is winding in and under my river rocks, and they are very strong vines so I am going to take it out along with some ivy andcreeping rasberry that I should have known better to plant. It has only been growing 3 years so it should only take me about all of 1 day to get it all out. This pic is a close up of the lemon thyme in bloom.
