Mat Forming High Heat Ground Cover
We are looking for a plant that would thrive in very high summer heat often 100+, no slope, 20 to 30 inches of precipitation, alkaline soil, zone 9, very little upkeep available in remote location, mainly a low growing, mat forming primarily for weed suppression ground cover. Flowering plant would be a bonus. These can be established in an area with moisture then transplanted to the desired remote locations. Thank you for your time.

Look for Antennaria, aka pussytoes. There are cultivars as well as native, straight species plants. They grow to form a tough, drought-tolerant mat.
