At The Grounds Guys of Piedmont, we know the different types of plants native to South Carolina and how you can best take advantage of them to improve your landscape.

  • Cast Iron Plant: While this isn’t strictly a ground cover plant, it has a low light requirement so it doesn’t need as much sun to grow healthy. Its name is indicative of its ability to survive in poor growing conditions. Despite this, they can reach 30” in height and tolerate damp areas. It also doesn’t have any distinct associations with serious pests.
  • Bugleflower: This is a dark green plant that requires little care after established. It is the perfect ground cover plant and is attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. In early spring, the plant will also have spikes of blue flowers, but some may have white or pink flowers.
  • Barrenwort: This plant grows between 6 and 18 inches and consists of clumps of evergreen heart-shaped leaves. In early spring, you may notice crimson, yellow, or white flowers. It survives well in the shade and prefers moist well-drained soil.
