What are Ground Cover Plants?

Ground covers are low growing, often spreading plants that offer ground coverage in areas that are difficult to mow like slopes and hillsides. They can be a substitute for grass or used as borders around gardens and plant beds and along walkways. Ground covers help prevent erosion and suppress weed growth. There are a lot of options when it comes to these low maintenance plants. From evergreen to flowering to grasses and perennials you can certainly find the right plant for what you need.

 

Daylilies

What Ground Cover Plants Grow in Full Sun?

Most of our ground covers can tolerate full. So you are in luck because you have plenty of choices for full sun Ground Cover Plants! We love Drift Roses, Daylilies, Creeping Phlox, Dianthus, and groundcover Juniper for sunny spots in the landscape. Choose from a wide variety of colors, textures, and types.

What Ground Cover Plants Grow in Shade?

Our Ground Cover Plants for shade include Lirope, Dwarf Japanese Garden Juniper, Daylily, Mondo Grass, Cityline Paris Bigleaf Hydrangea, Sum and Substance Hosta, Gumpo White Azalea, and Flirt Nandina. These plants can all grow in part shade sites. Keep in mind most flowering groundcovers will likely bloom better in sunny conditions. Carex Sedge, Coral Bells Heuchera, Snow-N-Summer Asiatic Jasmine and Variegated Liriope will tolerate heavy shade.

What are the Best Ground Cover Plants for Slopes?

Most ground covers work well on hills and slopes. Junipers are the best Ground Cover Plants for these difficult areas. Juniper plants are excellent for controlling erosion. If you prefer ground cover flowering plants, Drift Roses and Creeping Phlox are a great choice for planting on hillsides.

 

How to Plant Ground Cover Plants

Water your potted plant thoroughly before planting. Be sure to check the sunlight recommendations for your particular ground cover plant. Dig a hole twice the width and almost as tall as the root ball. Once placed in the hole the root ball of your plant should be slightly higher than the soil line. Fill the hole with water, backfill the hole with soil, and tamp the soil down gently with your hands to remove air pockets. Apply 1 to 2 inches of mulch around your plant and water again until the water begins to pool. Water daily for the first week.
