Ground between raised wall and stone path?

I have a partially raised pond that I will be putting stepping stones around this spring. I would like to add some kind of ground cover to soften the pond wall and grow between the path and the wall. In the winter I put a solar cover over the pond . You can see in the attached pic how the grass grew over winter where it was under the solar cover and also where the grass was crushed from blocks to hold down the solar cover. My hopes in winter is to place the blocks that hold the solar cover down on the stepping stones and not the ground cover.

So i need an idea of a good ground cover here, flowering would be nice, but nice foliage is most important , and evergreen would be nice as well if it makes it through the winter with the cover over it. Soil is well drained , not wet , drought tolerant would be good.
