I need a ground cover for next to the house. I kind of wanted flowers but wasn`t sure what to pick.

Groundcover Near the House

If you are planting groundcover near the house, you should look for plants that are not overly aggressive. Ivy, variagated vinca and other fast growers can actually damage your house by growing under the siding or forcing their way through window frames. Good groundcover choices include periwinkle, sweet woodruff, liriope and phlox.
