Watercress

Looking for a ground cover.  I’m trying to buy only edibles from here on out.  And, I need ground cover so my sister suggested Watercress.  Comments?

“It will grow quite happily in very moist soil or a bucket of water!  Watercress can be sown directly into the ground from May, as long as the site is quite damp and in the shade, and you chose the land cress variety. It will have grown sufficiently to harvest in July.”

Land cress variety?  Hmmm. I have a very damp, shaded area in the yard where I’d like to try this.  We’ll see!
