What kind of ground cover is best for my home?
Length of my house faces east and west. I would like to plant something that doesn't creep up the sides of my house. I would like a covering that is durable and stays short to the ground and doesn't need a lot of maintenance. Please help! thank you.
Dear Gardener: Non-creeping ground covers are Vinca minor and Pachysandra terminalis. Both are evergreen. Vinca has a blue flower in early May and the Pachysandra has a white flower at about the same time. Both are hardy in Indianapolis.
