There are many different plants that can be used as groundcover. Your best selection will depend on the growing conditions where you need to plant it. In a sunny area you might consider creeping thyme (Thymus serpyllum), creeping phlox (Phlox subulata), the tawny daylily (Hemerocallis fulva) or low growing juniper shrubs for example. In a shady area you might consider Pachysandra, Vinca minor, Hosta, or ferns, for example. Your local county extension and/or professionally trained nurseryman may also have suggestions based on the growing conditions where you want to grow this and your overall design goals. Good luck with your project!
