Would this grow in Central Western Florida along the Gulf I have a double planting area between a winding walkway about 70 feet long, wide on each side I'm disabled back issues & purple & some yellow ,white would look great. Weather is sunny east side 40-95 usually, also blocked between 6 ft wood fence on one side house on west side I vision it looking gorgeous again!! Or what would you tecommend?Does this or other ground covers spread?? Thanks for your professional expertise!

6. Plant a native meadow. If you have a larger outdoor space to contend with, you may not want to cover it all in gravel or stone. Think instead about creating a low-maintenance “meadow” of native plants that requires little water or upkeep. A local landscaping pro or a staffer at a good garden center should be able to guide you in choosing plants that will do well in your area. This is also a good option for sloped yards, where hardscaping would be more difficult.
