Suggestions for ground cover in dry hot shade?
I just saw a picture of cornus canadensis in the "favorite plants of 2008" thread. that picture made me salivate. i have an area at the outskirts of my property that needs a groundcover. it seems that the cornus canadensis needs more water than i can give it. so i was thinking ajuga (catlin's giant)? can anyone comment on the water needs of ajuga? does it do well in dry shade? other suggestions?
