I live near Nashville and just had some dozer work done and need to plant some sort of ground cover on the fresh cut banks. The soil is clay. What kind of fast growing low ground cover can I plan this time of year?

If the area is sunny you can plant sedums (several different kinds are available), creeping rosemary or creeping thyme, Bronze Wave Coral Bells (which is a native plant), or creeping mint (Meehania cordata), which is also a native plant. The beauty of native plants is that they adapt quite easily and thrive once established in the ground. Best wishes with your new ground cover!
