The groundcover is planted in a rather sunny spot. It does really well during the spring but dies off almost completely once the temps get high.

    Much appreciated, Laura. Those terraces are gorgeous, and I’ve considered doing something similar. But I hate to spend that much money, to be honest. The easier / cheaper approach would be groundcover. So I’m continuing my search.

    You’re welcome TJ! And you are right about not using this plant as ground cover. In my humble opinion & gardening experiences over the years. That often ‘ground cover’ plants eventually will be come high maintenance due to keeping them in check not mention numerous of yearly prolific self sown weeds to control as well. To me it’s just another endless chore of a gigantic flower bed. Check out these terrace designs, or you could consult professionals about grading your steep slope into a more gradual grade. Best wishes TJ! Laura

    I think you’re right, Laura. Thank you. But after reading up on it, I don’t think I want to use it. I’m looking for a groundcover to fill a shady section of a rather steep hill, one that I’m really tired of mowing. But I need something that won’t spread uncontrollably into the lawn. I’m afraid this might take over the whole area.

    Maybe ground elder (Aegopodium podagraria). Check it out and see if you have a match. Click on images to enlarge from the included link. Best wishes!
