Groundcover

I am doing a big install around a pool, bringing in some boulders and trying to incorparate a low creeping ground cover with them, the thing that gets me is there is no shade. What are some of your guys favorites? Im in Virginia, I will also need something that could deal with being installed now in the middle of June. Let me know what you guys think could workout well.

Thanks alot.

Pachysandra is a good option. It does well in sun or shade

No shade? Blue Pacific Juniper is a good option. Pachysandra tends to bleach out and look bad in the sun. Bearberry, Wintercreeper Euonymus (Emerald Gaiety or Emerald 'n' Gold), creeping dogwood, ...

Pachysandra in full sun in VA will do nothing for 1-2 years before it goes away. mazus and isotoma are pretty awesome low growers, and there's always liriope spicata if they're cool with a thicker look.
