Winter Creeper (Euonymus Colorata) grows equally well in full sun or light shade, in rich, moist, well-draining soil. Sometimes plants are listed by their botanical rather than their common names so perhaps you can find it under the botanical name. I would choose native groundcovers for the Virginia mountains. They will thrive without much attention from you. The following website lists the best:

The only downside is that it does not provide descriptions of the plants. But you can look them up on the web to see if they appeal to you. Hope this information is helpful!
