I have a very sunny front garden and i am trying to find a pretty low flowering plant that will give me good ground cover. I'd like it to be fast growing too. Can anyone give me some advice please. I'm Stuck!



Helianthemums are low growing shrubs that flower all summer. They like a sunny spot and good drainage. They spread over the ground. - just a suggestion. Maybe you'll get a few more.

Lavender, Convolvulus cneroum, low growing varieties of Hebe. You could use some shorter lived flowering plants to fill any gaps while the main ones grow in - like Dianthus species.

Silene uniflora 'Druitt's variegated', Campanula muralis, Cotula hispida, Arabis saxe-coburgii, Oreganum 'aureum' (from the herb section)
