Answer: Baby's Tears makes a delightful groundcover, but Blue Star Creeper or Creeping Thyme would make wonderful substitutes. Blue Star Creeper (Laurentia fluviatilis)produces tiny blue flowers all summer long. Creeping Thyme (Thymus praecox arcticus) flowers are lilac to lavender in color. Both have tiny leaves like Baby's Tears and either plant would fit in the spots you've indicated and provide real eye-appeal!
