Isotoma (blue star creeper) takes full sun, foot traffic, spreads quickly and neatly. Love to use this as ground cover and in between flagstones.

The ground cover also looks a lot like Mazus Reptans. It flowers like this in the late spring, but maintains a beautiful green mat appearance all summer long. It has done great for me. Blue star creeper didn't last where I had it.

Will Mazus Reptans work in the shade in zone 9b?

Oh my...I missed this question, my apologies. This is Blue Star Creeper (Isotoma fluvatilis "little Blue Star). It looks similar to Mazus but, a completely different plant. Yes, Mazus will work in Zone 9

@vysnia and klyle5 - sorry for the delinquent answer...The shrubs to the right of the path are Nandina 'Moon Bay'. It is a dwarf Nandina, staying compact to about 3' tall, evergreen with beautiful fall color. Hardiness zones 6A to 10B (This is in the Pacific NW)

You beat me! And I actually wondered if they might be a type of Nandina! They look great!

Thank you, this is one of my favorite combinations too. The "grass" on the left is Carex morrowii 'Aureovariegata'- Variegated Sedge. It is a clumping sedge, tolerates shade or some sun, is evergreen and gets to about 12" tall. It doesn't need to be and shouldn't be cut back in the winter like other grasses.
