Ground Cover Shade Plant Ideas

Ground cover plants cover the ground and keep weeds from growing!

Less weeding, less work in your garden! Ground cover plants also saves you money because of less mulching!

Ferns are a traditional shade plant.

Wild Geraniums are easy to care for! Polinators love them!

Woodruff is my favorite!  It is low growing and stays a beautiful green!

I also love Jacob's Ladder!

Lily of the Valley is also a shade plant. But, it is invasive so don't plant it even if you like it!

Pro Tip: observe sun and shade patterns.  Some areas are shadier than others.
