Planting under cars

I have to put my car in the drive between 10am and 12.01 pm Mon to Sat and would like to have a bed under the car between the wheels. My car is about 15cm from ground to the chassis and the only suggestion I can find is Lysimachia nummularia or Vinca both of which are thugs. I have tried goggling plants under cars with no luck at all. The garden is east facing so plants need to cope with part shade. Suggestion please as apart from a few geraniums, and one fern I cannot find anything.

    Google carpet type rock garden plants, ones that just spread but don't grow tall . Sedum coral carepa perhaps ?

    Thank you Flora rosa but I thin Sedums need full sun and mine will only get partial sun.

    Isn't a bigger problem than light likely to be the heat when the car is first parked?  It takes quite a while for a hot engine to cool down.
