I have just created a large decorative bed which I have filled with various shrubs and plants for all year round colour and am now shopping for evergreen low level ground cover, something which spreads quickly. We have no shade and the site is very exposed. Please can you help

Hi Angie,
Testing conditions and you want evergreen evergreen as well…!
Try a few from this list:
Helianthemum nummularium
Alyssum saxatile
Erysimum linifolium
Gypsophila repens (Rosea is lovely)
Iberis saxatile
Ajuga reptans (Bergandy Glow for a bit of purple)
Pachysandra terminalis
Achillea Moonshine
Convolvlus cneorum (I always forget how to spell this one!)
Festuca glauca (A grass)
Stachys lanata
Saxifrage x urbium 'London Pride'
All best,
David Sewell NCH, NDH
