Q. Looking for ideas for full sun ground cover along the side of the house in a space 3 ft wide and 8 ft in length
I am plant challenged!!
Dear Soon-to-be Gardener: Vinca minor is a good ground cover and is quite sun tolerant. Other ideas:
Antennaria doica Pussy Toes
If you Google these, you will find images and more details and you can decide what is best for your garden.
