Best choice (and where to buy) groudcover?


Looking for some ideas or suggestions for types of ground cover. I am open to internet nurseries as well.

Ground cover for a rock garden. Full sun.

What part of the country do you live in? Or if you know what zone you're in, that would help.

What type of groundcover??
Bark nuggets, mulch, stone, or plants - how high?

I just use phlox
Until it grows in & covers the area I add mulch
Pink white or purple flowers

A few to try:

Moss Sedum (can spread aggressively)
Ajuga ("Chocolate Chip") (doesn't dry-out as easily in summer)
Golden Creeping Jenny (invasive but pretty)
Stokes Aster
Creeping Thyme

Just found this website with a huge list of ground cover plants. You'll have a lot to choose from.

if the link doesn't work, go to finegardening.com

Hope this helps.
