    The juniper like that is nice. But in Oregon here, it almost always gets disease.

    Maybe not the best plant in the world, but tough, with yellow flowers is St. Johnswort - Hypericum.

    Either leave it alone, or mow it down in February to refresh and do a simultaneous leaf clean-up if any are imbedded.

    Its still a decent groundcover. It will spread quickly if the soil is decent.
