Beautiful Ground Cover Ideas

a blanket of blooms In the springtime I don’t think there is another ground cover that is any more beautiful and eye-catching as Creeping Phlox. It is gorgeous and blooms.

Creeping Thyme forms low growing, 2 inch tall carpets of green aromatic, lemon-scented leaves. Plants are blanketed in carmine-pink flowers in late spring and summer. They are loved by butterflies. Vigorous and easy to grow, 'Magic Carpet' thyme is an excellent small scale ground cover. Also beautiful between stepping stones or in containers.
