Our native creeping dogwood from seed collected during one of our many hikes in the Olympic Mountains.  This deciduous groundcover is such a good plant with obvious white dogwood flowers on 4"-6" stems followed by clusters of red fruit.  We like it when it climbs a bit up mossy trunks and logs.  Loose soil with a good organic content.

Cotoneaster sp. CGG 14016 Cotoneaster sp. CGG 14016

Our collection from Asia of this low growing - prostrate actually - creeping Cotoneaster. It is one we admired as it crept over a rock face along the trail and we kept going, not intending to collect seed. Looking back, we saw our friend and great plantsman Peter Cox collecting seed so we scampered back to do the same.  Found in the range of C. dammeri but there are 111 species in China alone.

Epimedium leptorrhizum 'Mariko' Epimedium leptorrhizum 'Mariko' OG 93009

A very good, not scary, evergreen groundcover.  'Mariko' is a selection from a collection by Mikinori Ogisui, incredible plantsman and plant explorer, who named it for his wife.  Judging by the graceful spidery flowers with showy pink sepals and white spurs and petals plus bronzy new growth, Mariko herself has it all going on.

Veronica hookeriana Veronica hookeriana

This sweet little New Zealand groundcover is perhaps best known by its former name of Parahebe olsenii.  Soft lavender flowers with a yellow eye rimmed in cerise feathering are held just above the small rounded evergreen leaves that have tones of green olive.  Tidy is a word that comes to mind.
