Groundcover for Swampy Hill
My significant other's housemate wants to plant ivy as a ground cover. Her house abuts some wetlands.
What can I suggest as an alternative? Doesn't have to be native, just has to be more Earth Friendly then ivy.
It is a steep slope in a swampy area, zone 6 or 5A.
Her main requirements are it has to:
a.) stop erosion and
b.) not hide her lilies.
I was thinking of Lily of the Valley, Cranberry, or Cinnamon Ferns. Do any of those make sense? Could any two of those be combined?
