Groundcovers

These are ground covering plants that readily develop into a mass of stems, leaves, and / or flowers. Groundcovers act like a living mulch and once fully established often help to shade the ground beneath them which helps to reduce weeds. This is also a good way to make a statement in the garden or landscape or use these plants as fillers beneath and around larger growing plants.
