If your soil is acid, heathers might look good. I`ve seen steep banks covered with "Mind your own business" too which spreads like crazy and covers everything. Have often thought about placing stone shapes and let the plant run all over them, with a bit of imagination could make an interesting feature. I think the plant is called Helxine ??
Short varieties of lavender may work too as they are drought resistant. Munstead is easy to grow from seed, and would be a cost effective way to produce lots of plants. Small leaf variegated ivy would look after itself quite well too.
Sorry, haven`t got any pics!
