Ferns Shady Native Shady Ground Covers
|Vinca or Periwinkle is a
well-known ground cover for shady areas. The
evergreen foliage is attractive year round, as
well as having pretty flowers in late spring.
Useful under shrubs or trees, or in difficult

Mow back every 3-4 years to thicken up the plants.
