When planting a border, choose evergreen plants or a mix of plants that bloom throughout the year. This ensures your border always has interesting foliage and blooms to view. If you plant only spring-blooming flowers, you'll have a beautiful border early in the year and dying foliage the remaining months. Mark the border area before you plant to ensure you have enough space to accommodate the desired plants. Keep the plants in the border no more than 3 feet tall so it doesn't become overwhelming. Plants that require minimal care and adapt well to the conditions provide a worry-free border option.

Ground-cover plants typically grow low to the ground in dense clumps that spread or vine. The plants also generally grow quickly, covering dirt in the landscape. One example is the showy dewflower (Drosanthemum floribundum), which is hardy in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9 through 11 and produces pink flowers. Another option is Japanese spurge (Pachysandra terminalis). It is a perennial in USDA zones 4 through 8 and has lots of small, green leaves. The wall germander (Teucrium chamaedrys), hardy in USDA zones 5 through 9, flowers in late spring and early summer. It grows up to 1 foot tall but can be trimmed to keep it a low ground cover. Avoid choosing plants that are considered invasive they could become overgrown and hurt their ecosystem.

I'm wondering if some of the photos on here are really of Drosanthemum floribundum -- more likely Delosperma cooperi or Delosperma floribundum?
D. floribundum has small wispy 15 mm pale purple flowers and tiny 15 mm leaves. It only makes an impact because of the number of flowers and the huge space it can cover. Here in Cornwall it can grow 8 feet across or more, but the flowers are rather scarce.

The thing that first attracted me to this plant was that the succulent leaves have tiny glistening crystals all over them, making them look like they have been dipped into tiny sparkles. They are so different. The flowers open in the sun and as soon as it becomes shady or overcast, they close.
