Native plants for cracks in the pavement

Asked March 14, 2020, 6:58 PM EDT

Hello. I have a bunch of cracks in my driveway and sidewalk. I'm constantly fighting to pull out weeds that pop up in the cracks. Do you have any suggestions for native plants that could survive in the cracks and suppress the weeds? I'm hoping to just put some type of native seeds in the cracks.

Multnomah County Oregon

Thank you for your question. If the area is wet and shaded, moss works. If it is dry and or sunny, consider a non-native but helpful creeping thyme: http://www.pnwplants.wsu.edu/PlantDisplay.aspx?PlantID=541 Good luck!
