Corsican Mint, mat-forming groundcover w/tight green, aromatic foliage. Tiny lavender flowers in summer. Use as a lawn sub or between stones; scent released when walked on. Good for front entryways & back patios. Handles moist areas too; will reseed.
Plants to Use as Lawn Alternative: Irish Moss (Sagina subulata). When you decide to replace your lawn with a groundcover, you’ll create easy-care beauty that trims your landscape chore list. Select lawn alternatives like you would any other plant.
Isotoma fluviatilis - Fast growing ground cover good in in sun to part shade. Tolerates being walked on. I think the flowers close up when stepped on and reopen after a few seconds. Great for around flagstone.
