Ground cover ideas

(Zone 6b)

Looking for an evergreen groundcover for a shady slope in zone 6b. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

Vinca minor
Pachysandra terminalis
Coptis laciniata may be hardy enough
Asarum species may be evergreen in your area
A very steep slope will pose some challenges

I am looking at the same problem except 7b. Am thinking of trying some cold hardy succulents. Kind of a new favorite for the last 3 years. Am kind of done with the whole water wasting plan.
I will watch and see what you decide. Goodluck.

Tulsa, OK(Zone 7a)

Pachysandra would be an ideal ground cover for those two zones. I have a large patch that has been there many years. It propagates itself and will eventually cover a large area.
