I am partial to creeping phlox, wild strawberry, and wild violet.  

 

I like classic dutch clover but its non native.  I planted some miniclover recently to prevent erosion.  Violet wood sorrel doesnt compare in thickness of growth (for me).

 

Thoughts?

what about pachysandra (sp)...not sure if it's native or not. I have it on the north side of my house, that slopes away from any possible sun

I dislike pachysandra.  I dont like how it looks and it offers zero ecological benefit other than obvious erosion control.

 

Vinca minor is a good call. I have some by the driveway.   

 

Lillyof the valley is invasive/non native, but I'd like to establish trout lilly in some shady spots.  Similar sort of plant.

I like phlox. I need to plant some actually.
