Fun in The Sun Groundcovers

This selection of groundcovers prefer sun, and will thrive on the south or southeast side of a building or an open area. Keep in mind that not all sun plants prefer dry soil; there are several plants on the list that require moist/well drained soil. Be sure to check your site conditions and plant the right plant in the right place.
