Groundcovers that Like it Dry

These drought tolerant plants are a mix of those that thrive in full sun as well as some that not only prefer dry soil, but also prefer shade. The shade plants on this list are ideal for planting underneath dense shade trees where natural rainfall does not reach the ground.

NOTE: Newly planted Groundcovers require watering until established, typically after one growing season.
