Steppable/mowable Ground Cover

I am looking for a ground cover suitable for shade in zone 6 (MA) that can be planted in between slabs of bluestone or flagstone. Since it's the only access area for a lawnmower, it must be able to handle mower traffic. Thank you!

Several that you might consider include: Kenilworth ivy (Cymbalaria), creeping jenny (Lysimachia nummularia), Corsican mint (Mentha requieni), and bugleweed (Ajuga).
