Plantings on Hill - Knowledgebase Question

Question by rromano4

We just moved in to a new house so landscaping is the next project for spring. What can I plant on a hilly section of my yard where I have no intention of mowing? It's quite a large section and drops down approximately 50 ft. I would like to plant something that would be low maintenance, fast growing and allow coverage.

Crown vetch is a nice plant to establish on a steep, sunny, hillside that you don't want to mow, but want to stay relatively low growing. Crown vetch produces pinkish-purple flowers all summer and only gets about 2' tall. It will spread, so don't plant it near desired plantings. (See a picture of the plant on page 110 of the current Burpee catalog.)
