Here at Windy Willows, we have a wide selection of gorgeous ground covers that will add bursts of colour and vibrancy to any garden. Some of our popular ground covers include:


  • Dwarf blue agapanthus: These stunning agapanthus will add brightness and charm to your garden. They thrive best in semi-shade or sunshine and are a great choice for those who want to be water-wise. They’re also an indigenous plant and are thus a great pick for anyone who wants to keep things local.


  • Bugleweed: These rosy leaves are bound to delight any plant lover. When it comes to ground covers, you can’t go wrong with this plant with its pink and green speckles. Their leaves spread quickly and in the spring months, they boast beautiful blue flowers.

They are also a great way to keep weeds away and will fill any empty spaces. Ground covers can easily fill in spots where your grass won’t grow and can be used in flowerbeds, shady patches, and under trees. They also usually grow well without the need to use harmful chemicals and pesticides and thus they are also good for the environment.
