Groundcover Perennials

Easy-to-grow groundcovers are useful and beautiful

Whether you're looking to prevent erosion, replace your lawn, or fill in those weed-prone areas between the stepping stones of your garden path, we have a wonderful variety of tough, easy-to-grow perennial groundcovers that will multiply and naturalize beautifully. Groundcovers are experts at outcompeting weeds - plant them in hard to reach areas or use them to create a low-growing carpet of flowers and foliage in between taller plants.
