Ground cover for shade

Zone 28729, 2000 feet, zone 7a | Anonymous added on February 23, 2020 | Answered

I live in Henderson County, NC, zone 7a at 2000 feet in altitude. I am looking for a ground cover that can accept foot traffic, maybe like a clover or peanut grass, or you may have a better alternative. Additionally, I have a partially shaded hill that could take taller cover without foot traffic. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

Creeping Thyme or Sweet Woodruff may be good choices. Here is an article that may help:
