Ground cover plants can be used for poor or rich soil, shady, part shade or full sun, wet or dry depending on which plants you choose. The list is endless and here are a few of the ones I use as ground cover in my garden. Sedum ellacombianum, Phlox subulatas such as Emerald blue and Candy stripe, Aubriaeta Red and Blue cascade,
Campanula poscharskyana (Serbian bellflower), Cerastium Snow in summer, Dianthus deltoides flashing light, Dryas octopetala, Geranium war grave pink, Nepeta 'six hills giant' Phalaris arundinaera, British lavender and Horizontal Junipers.
