If you’re looking for a hardy ground cover, Coprosma Repens has fast become a favourite at my house. Unfortunately not locally sourced, I did get a lot from Rogers for $2 and utilised it on banks and other shady spots where we have failed to establish other plants. In fact we have planted it in the places tradescantia used to be. It’s glossy and bright green so looks beautiful and keeps invasive weeds at bay – win all round!
