Ground covers for acid soil

About the only good “ground cover” plant for acidic soil I know of is pachysandra. Any others?

ligonberry, cranberry and low bush blueberry are fruiting options. :wink:

Strawberries don’t care, what I use. Here is a fall shot, Two blueberries, one I just put in on the left, and the one on the right was put in the year before. Notice the strawberries around it.

The soil is plenty acidic. Here is the same blueberry plant surrounded by strawberries on 2019 07 24. Notice good pollination, and no red leaves, nice and green, pH is good!


arctic raspberries are another good ground cover that doesn’t mind acidity.

Yes I have those too around other blueberries. Not as vigorous but growing fine.
