Periwinkle - good lawn substitute for sloping ground. Thrives in shade and is drought-tolerant (grow on its own!)

Vinca minor is good ground cover and would work in the front below the roses.  Flowers can be blue or white.

Convolvulus sabatius  This sweet little plant develops a dense carpet of grey-green leaves, and only grows about 15-20cm high. It spreads extensively, is fast growing and has slender twining stems that are studded with periwinkle blue blooms. Drape over rockeries, pathways and retaining walls. It grows best in full sun or part shade and in well-drained soil. It will tolerate hot, exposed sites and coastal salt sprays.Graham's top groundcover plants
