Ground Cover That Doesn't Flower

English Ivy (Hedera helix) is a ground cover that does not produce flowers in its juvenile form. The ivy plant has two different stages: juvenile and adult. The juvenile form is a vine that can act as a ground cover. The adult stage is a shrub or tree. Flowers are only produced when the ivy is in adult form, as the University of Connecticut states.
