We have brought together all the ground cover perennials which need good garden soil to flourish.
To cover large areas, we prefer plants with big leaves and similarly for small spaces (courtyards, paving) we like ground cover perennials with small leaves (Sagina, Pratia). As they tend to be vigorous growers, it’s best to avoid mixing them with other species.
