What is a good, easy to care for, evergreen perennial groundcover that will grow good in zone 6? I want to plant it along a drainage ditch and under some Maple trees on the South & East sides of my house. I'd prefer it to be a flowering groundcover but it doesn't have to be. Thanks.

You could try Vinca minor (Creeping Myrtle) which has blue flowers in the spring or English ivy (Hedera helix). Both tolerate a wide range of conditions, although the Vinca will prefer a moister soil in a sunnier location.
