native groundcover plants for garden

Asked May 15, 2016, 8:17 AM EDT

I would like to grow a native groundcover around my house to keep weeds out. I would appreciate any suggestions for a groundcover that is a perennial in our area. Thank you for your time.

To reply to your question regarding native ground covers, I need to ask you some questions. What county do you live in? Are you planting in full sun, full shade, or a combination of both. Is your soil wet or dry?

In reading my resource book,"Delaware Native Plants for Landscaping and Restoration" printed by the Delaware Native Plant Society, I did not see many vine type ground covers, if that was what you were looking for. There are many other types of ground covers depending upon where you wish to plant your natives.

I look forward to hearing back from you.
