Stepping Stone Planting - Knowledgebase Question

Carlsbad, Ca
Question by surffam

I have a few paths in my yard of stepping stones ,made from concrete molds. One area is part shade where I have
Baby Tears growing, but the other half is more sun...What can I plant in between the stones? I've thought of various Mints, but i've heard they are invasive and best left to pots. Plus, it's got to be low growing. Thanks for the input! P.S. I have a Cottage Garden in the making.

A Cottage Garden sounds wonderful! I have creeping Thyme growing between my pavers in a sunny area. It's low growing and clings to soften the edges of the pavers. Plus, it blooms several times a year with tiny lavender-purple flowers. Hope it works for you !
