How to Create Groundcovers

Used to take up space or create a carpet of color, these five deer- and rabbit-resistant varieties for the shade work great in a landscape design. Lamium spreads quickly and adds lovely color to your gardening space. Lamiastrum is a close plant relative that has yellow flowers in the spring. Herman’s pride plants have silver-streaked leaves, while Canadian wild ginger is drought- tolerant plant that forms a dense carpet. Lungwort plants do well in wet areas, and ajuga plant has cobalt blue flowers in the spring to bring life and color into your next landscape design! [Source: BHG.com]
