Just created a small bog garden, tropical themed with ferns, gunnera etc. Can anyone recommend a good creeping ground cover plant suitable for this damp, shady project. (tropical ideal but not vital). thank you



I like Mitella as it produces a bright green leaf. then there are the various Ajuga's for leaf colours.

Welcome to GoY too.

How about Houttuynia cordata variegata, it spreads where it is happy. It's never been a problem with me, but could be I suppose. Terrible photo of it here, much better in reality.
