TN Nurseries best selling groundcovers
Ground covers are perfect for landscaping around sidewalks, patios, or anywhere there's not a lot of sun, and the ground needs something to landscape with that doesn't get very large.
Periwinkle Ground Covers are the #1 seller at our plant nursery. It's an evergreen vine and blooms delicate lavender blooms up for two months in the spring and summer.
Its foliage is evergreen and stays lovely and dark year-round. Vinca Minor is the name of dwarf periwinkle, ground cover vining plants.
Hedra Helix is another garden favorite. It, too, stays green year-round, being in the evergreen vining family. Its leaves are more significant than the periwinkle but have more extensive roots and also an excellent ground cover for soil erosion. Plant on steep hillsides where you can't get with weedeaters and lawnmowers. It's also a fast grower and multiplies fast. It's also called the English Ivy. It has a variegated vein running through the center of its leaves. Giving it a very distinctive look.
Lastly, the third choice of garden plant ground covers is the Ajuga Vines. They are hardy, do well in the sun or shade, and prefer to be left alone. Little or no maintenance with these vines as with the former two. Just plant them and watch them take off.
