Flowering groundcovers: These 20 plants ensure gorgeous blooms in the garden

Instead of constantly weeding the annoying weeds in your garden, you can elegantly suppress them with the right plants. Flowering groundcovers are a great idea to do this, especially if they are low-maintenance and hardy. Of course, you should find out in advance which lighting conditions are optimal for your ground cover and what you should generally pay attention to when watering and caring for it. It would be best if you opted for walkable ground covers for the lawn or for those that are hardy and perennial. Then you can enjoy it for longer.

Usually, flowering groundcovers are either perennials, subshrubs, or even lower shrubs. Ground cover plants spread fairly quickly and widely, primarily by root suckers or in some cases by seed. All plants have different flowering times. That’s why you can opt for more than one type of ground cover and enjoy its magnificent blooms without interruption.

Evergreen and flowering ground covers – extra tips:

  • If you want to plant larger areas in the garden with ground covers, then you should ensure that neighboring plants are competitive. Such are many of the onion flowers, such as B. daffodils, hyacinths, crocuses, tulips, dahlias, ornamental onions and ranunculus.
  • Before planting the ground cover, you should prepare the soil well. The first thing you should do is carefully remove all the rhizomes from weeds and till the soil with a hoe.
  • Experienced gardeners recommend covering the soil with mulch paper before actually planting. This is biodegradable and thus protects the environment. Then cut holes in the mulch paper for the ground cover and insert them one after the other into the soil.
  • After thorough watering, you can use horn shavings as fertilizer and then top off with bark mulch.

Flowering ground covers of the genus Delosperma prefer sandy or stony soil

  • For very sunny spots in the garden, a thin layer of lava chippings is recommended instead of bark mulch or compost.
  • For some types of evergreen or flowering ground cover, consider reverting in late winter or early spring. It is best to always look at the profile beforehand or ask the experts at the nursery.

Flowering groundcovers are not only beautiful in terms of flowers, but also very useful if you want to combat weeds in the garden in an environmentally friendly and effective way. Combine several types of groundcover plants that bloom at different times or in different colors and enjoy your garden paradise from spring to late autumn.

Flowering ground covers are suitable for all types of garden design
