Abstract:This annotated checklist was developed to provide a guide to some plant materials that might be useful as ground cover plantings in warmer climates. In developing this list, the broad definition of ground covers used includes some of the taller but sprawling shrubs, such as star jasmine, and selected vining plants that may be useful for large, open areas and bank covers. Also included are some plants better adapted to cooler climates, such as English ivy, which may be useful at higher elevations in tropical areas. A few of the ornamental grasses have been included, but the common grasses used for turf are not listed.
