Low Lying Plants for a Walkway


Anonymous added on February 14, 2018 | Answered

I live in Southern California; putting in lights along a brick walkway to the front door of our house; need a suggestion for a low-lying (preferably drought tolerant, but not required) plant no higher than 10-14 inches. Looking for something compact and colorful, house is cream stucco and burgundy trim. This is causing a lot of consternation...have looked at dwarf geraniums but landscaper can't find what we are looking for.

Here is a list of drought-tolerant ground covers that might do the trick. All of them are low-lying, and many are colorful when they are in bloom or year-round.
