ground cover plants and question about Meeting in Berkeley

Hi Elaine. One sweet little ground cover that complements the bulb garden is an Australian native violet called Viola hederacea, it is a very low growing free flowering species that is non-invasive & won't smother the bulbs. It has shallow roots & can be quite drought tolerant in sun or shade. The more common colour is purple & white, & less common pastel mauve. 
I saw some for sale I'n California two years ago I'n a nursery someware near Calsbad.

I'm growing summer growing bulbs like cannas, tulip, kniphofia, watsonia, amercrinium and some winter ones like galanthus, bletilla striata(not sure if this orchid is considered a bulb). I'm wondering what are good ground cover plants that remain evergreen
