Some really good ground covers for your gardening region include:
Lamium maculatum - Lamium is known as an invasive plant that is hard to control, but this particular variety is one of the more restrained cultivars. It has a variegated chartreuse leaves and pink or white flowers.

Galium odoratum - Sweet woodruff is a deciduous perennial that grows 8 to 12 inches tall. It grows well with little maintenance in moist soil and it flowers in the spring.

Liriope 'Silver Dragon' - is one of the few shade-loving ground covers that can tolerate dry shade. Its leaves are variegated and its blooms are pale lavender.

Hope these suggestions are helpful.
