Ground Cover Shrubs for Colorado Climates Include:
Junipers are a landscapers favorite to cover large areas with low growing shrubbery. Junipers are notoriously rugged plants that are tolerant of heat, drought, poor soil conditions, and even some foot traffic.
Coral Beauty Cotoneaster
This low growing variety of Cotoneaster boasts prolific white flowers that give way to red berries and provide long-lasting interest during the growing season. They grow fast and cover ground quickly.
Pawnee Buttes Sandcherry
A Colorado native, this variety of Sandcherry stays low to the ground, only growing about 18” tall. It is excellent for ground cover because a single plant can spread up to 6’. Like other Sandcherries, this shrub is drought tolerant and is easy to grow. It blooms with fragrant white flowers in the late Spring and glossy green foliage turns a mahogany red in the Fall.
Availability of ground cover shrubbery varies throughout the year so contact Nick’s to see what we have in stock. We can help you find the perfect ground cover to complement your patio and landscaping.
