Help with my Colorado Rock garden

Asked January 16, 2013, 8:01 PM EST

I'm designing a rock garden in the front of the house on the north side where there is never sun. Are there any drought tolerant shade loving ground covers? I guess I will want a variety of sizes, colors and textures if anything is available. Thanks.

Jefferson County Colorado

Please see the above referenced fact sheet on ground covers for Colorado. You'll see there are not a lot of ground covers that are shade loving, unfortunately. Some will tolerate partial shade, but only a few full shade.
