Ground Cover for Shady Area
There is a shady section (6' X 7') of my back yard that is on a slope and difficult to reach when mowing the grass. I would like a ground cover that has some color and is low maintenance. I live in the Boston area (Zone 6). Do you have any suggestions?

Hi,

Thanks for writing. In your area there are a lot of great groundcovers to choose from! The easiest way to learn about your choices is to do a search in our Plant Encyclopedia --- on the advanced search page, check the groundcover box in the landscape uses section. Then put in your Zone or Zip code, and check the shade box. If there are other special features you'd like to be sure to include, check those as well.
