We just put in a new walkway and between the blue stone I had planned to plant thyme. But when I went to pick it up - the shop said it was for sunny locations only. Is there another option? I live in zone 5 - Cleveland, OH. Thanks

Irish moss (Sagina subulata) or babys tears (Soleirolia) are good substitutes for a shady area. They spread nicely and do not grow very tall - usually only an inch. Hope they work for you.
