Native plants are always a best bet for conditions such as yours where the soil cannot be amended and the weather is harsh. Some native groundcovers to consider include Crossopetalum ilicifolium (Christmas berry), Distichlis spicata (Seashore saltgrass), Dyschoriste oblongifolia (Twinflower), Ernodea littoralis (Golden creeper) and Gaillardia pulchella (Blanket flower ). Hope these suggestions are helpful.
