|Bugle weed (Ajuga reptans) is a low growing ground cover - except for a few weeks in the spring when it sends up spikes of lavender/blue flowers; Cape-weed, lippia matchweed (Phyla nodiflora) grows about 3" tall; Dichondra is a non-flowering, low growing groundcover; Fig marigold (Glottiphyllum depressum) grows about 6" tall; Creeping Thyme is extremely low growing and tolerant of hot summer sunshine. Hope one of these suggestions works in your landscape.
