Plants for garden pathways which can handle foot traffic: Irish Moss is just the moss-like ground cover for rock gardens and planting between stepping stones and pavers, It is easy to cultivate these plants on pathways. They spread very rapidly and are blessed with a quality to tolerate heavy foot traffic. It cannot tolerate mcuh traffic or direct sunlight in the heat of the day in the Lower South.

Creeping oregano - ground cover, useful herb, drought tolerant, beautiful!

Corsican Mint ~ Wonderful, mat forming groundcover that features tight green, aromatic foliage. Tiny lavender flowers in summer. Plant as a lawn substitution or between stones so that the gentle scent of mint is released when walked on. Excellent for front entryways and back patios. Will take moist areas as well as normal landscape scenarios and will reseed easily in the garden.

Green hanging amaranth is also called Emerald Tassle. It's great for creating a trailing effect. There is also a burgandy/red variety called "love lies bleeding"! Not a great name for a wedding flower-but still very pretty!
