Wildflowers are a great ground cover
I planted wildflowers around the new house a year ago and this spring they have self sewed and look wonderful. The poppies especially are beautiful. The clover is thick in places and really lush. I hope it is adding nitrogen to the soil and the grasses are knee high and still green.
It has been a wet and cool year so far here in Northern California. I'm going to let the wildflowers go until they make seed so that they can self sew again. There are many varieties of wildflowers, from low growing to partial shade. You can check this out at your local nursery, but Amazon has some for sale, They also have a butterfly mix and a perinneal mix.
