Ground covers

I need a ground cover for full sun in zone 9-11, hot/dry inland area of So. CA. Mowable would be nice, but not the most important.

Thank for writing. Some varieties you may wish to consider are: New Zealand bur (Aceana), Gazania, thyme (Thymus), Sedum, and creeping rosemary. Look for these and other good choices at your local garden center.
