Groundcovers recommended for hill-holding.

These are difficult! They must bind soil both on the surface and as deeply as possible. In addition they must tolerate the dry conditions of their rapidly draining site.

WARNING: Because effective erosion-control plants are necessarily aggressive, some of them, under good growing conditions, can become seriously invasive. Examples of these are dwarf Japanese fleece-flower, artemisia 'Silver King,' Hall's Japanese honeysuckle and matrimony-vine. Glyphosate (Roundup) can come to your rescue if things get out of hand.
