Would like your suggestion on a low-profile ground cover to grow between the flagstone below. some direct sun light (maybe a few hours a day).

I also thought of creeping thyme. And groundcover roses there to the right of the flagstones.

That is a lovely area Pem. I don't know about groundcover, but some lilies would make the area pop. lol. What about some creeping phlox?
