    Hostas are incredibly durable and their root systems are very tough. I use them on the side of our house when sloping/erosion occur.

    In our area they use a variety of ice plants quite a bit.

    Ice plant is what we used to use. I bet any succulent we be great.

    Snow on the mountain works well in sun and shade.

    hypotension, creeping flops English ivy and mix in some strategically placed large stones to divert water away from roots. It's worked great for us.

    Ferns, hostas, red sedum (or pretty much any sedum but I think the red spreads best) tulips, daffodils, lilies, iris, Lambs ear, shrub roses, alliums, vinca vines...be sure to check the light/shade requirements for the plants you choose.
