    Many of the groundcovers/living mulches/perennial tapestries that once clothed my garden have by now been stolen or otherwise removed, so I'd love to have seeds of easily direct-sown flowers, herbs and/or vegetables that can be kept to 3' or lower with which to cover the ground. There are short or dwarf forms of many flowers that Celia Thaxter grew in her island garden off the coast of New Hanpshire(?) in a diagram of her garden, accompanied by a list of her flowers here:

    Anything from her garden or similar that might help keep weeds down would be much appreciated. Some suggestions are:

    Asters - ones like tiger paws? other?

    Coreopsis - threadleaf

    Cosmos - dwarfs, like Popsocks etc

    Dianthus like "Picotee Pinks (D. chinensis x D. barbatus in our time), Sweet William

    Helianthus angustifolius(sp?) - Willow Leaf Sunflower - leaves are slender like willow leaves - not in Celia's garden, but she would have loved this if she had known about it - not all floppers welcome on my slopes, but this one would be wonderful

    anything blue and spikey like larkspur, but doesn't expire because of Maryland summer heat & humidity

    Anything attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies, bees

    Mallows including malva, althea (dwarf), etc.

    Marigolds- any - like Tagetes tenuifolia(sp?) - Cottage Red

    Mignonette (Reseda odorata)

    Poppies - Eschscholzia like 'Rose Chiffon', Papaver alpinus, P. nudicaule(sp?), P. paeoniflorum

    Silene - any

    Zinnia - low growing - Chippendale? disease resistant like Profusions, haageana, Zahara

    If all goes well, I'm hoping this will approximate my New England grandmother's garden of long ago
