Groundcovers, as the
name implies, cover bare spaces of ground. This can be accomplished both
with traditional ground covers and with some vines, such as Purpleleaf Wintercreeper and English Ivy. Groundcovers tend to
be dense in their nature of growth. With habits that most often choke
out competing plants and weeds, groundcovers tend to be excellent in
preventing soil erosion. Some excellent choices for groundcovers are
listed below. We encourage you to explore these sites.
The goal of the Plant Index is to provide readers with encyclopedic information for aid in purchasing and maintaining landscape trees, shrubs, groundcovers, and vines. If you would like to see more, please visit any of our other sites listed below.
