Answer: There are lots of groundcover choices for the shade. Ajuga (carpet bugle) is the first to come to mind. It is an evergreen low growing plant with spikes of purple flowers in the spring. Others to consider include Asiatic Jasmine (Trachelospermum), Hall's Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica halliana), Holly Fern (Cyrtomium falcatum),
Japanese Spurge (Pachysandra terminalis), Lenten Rose (Helleborus orientalis),
Liriope (Liriope muscari), Mondo Grass (Ophiopogon japonicus), Plantain Lily (Hosta), Periwinkle (Vinca minor and Vinca major), Purple Wintercreeper (Euonymus fortunei coloratus) and St. Johnswort (Hypericum calycinum). Hope you find just the right ground cover for your landscape.
