Hi Carol,

Went ahead to research various types of perennial sedum that can grow in the conditions you have mentioned. Most sedum plants prefer full sun, though some tolerate partial shade.

1. RED DRAGONS BLOOD SEDUM

Sedum is not picky about the soil it will grow in and will tolerate just about any soil or sand.

2. Creeping Red Sedum. Can grow in part shade and can tolerate any kind of ground:

Both of those need full sun in the north.

Is there another type of ground cover that can grow in shade and moist soil?

Expert:  Michael replied 3 months ago.

There are a number of ground cover plants that can take shade and moist soil as the problem with sedum is that is likes shade only part of the day.

For something that can grow in shade and moist soil:
