The Q&A Archives: Ground Cover For Shaded Area

Question: What ground cover will grow best in a shaded area in a Denver garden?

Answer: Ajuga (carpet bugle), vinca minor (periwinkle), and Gallium odoratum (sweet woodruff) are a few options for you. If you can't find these locally, they are available via mail order from many different sources. Ajuga comes in many different leaf colors (green, chocolatey colored, purple, varietated), so there really is a lot to choose from. Enjoy!
