Here are a few to try: Creeping blue phlox (Phlox divericata): This plant is semi evergreen in Georgia and spreads nicely without becoming a pest. Blue, fragrant flowers come in early to mid spring. Ajuga (Ajuga reptans): This spreads quickly but is easy to control. Brightly colored variegated leaves keep their colors best when grown in sunny areas. Flowering spikes occur in spring or early fall. Can be grown in full sun too. Lily of the valley (Convallaria majalis): Though it takes a while to become established, this makes a stunning ground cover for shady gardens. It rarely, if ever, becomes a pest. Sweet-smelling, bell-shaped flowers occur in spring. Other shade-loving ground covers include wild ginger, mondo grass, foam flower, pachysandra and hostas.
