The Q&A Archives: Difficult Location

Question: The area which surrounds my new patio gets only a few hours of direct sun a day but it is hot afternoon sun. There are established Lamb's ears, Black-eyed Susans. I need something low growing. Any suggestions? I tried coreopsis but it didn't have too many blooms.

Answer: How about creeping phlox, creeping thyme, sedum 'Autumn Joy', Maidengrass or 'Elija Blue' blue fescue?
