Trailing plants to grow over a low wall?

Just wondering if anyone could recommend any plants that would trail over a low wall (see attached pic). Not too keen on campanula, don't mind aubretia. Just wondering if there is anything else? Would ivy-leaved toadflax do the trick? Something evergreen would be great, but not sure what....

phlox, glory of the snow, dianthus, thyme, sweet woodruff, lots of alpines

Thyme would be my top choice - bees will love the flowers, it smells great when you crush the foliage and you get to use it in the kitchen.

Erigeron would work too - it's got pretty pinkish white Daisy like flowers.

Helianthemum - aka 'rock rose', they make cushion type plants which will spill over the edge, and come in various colours from white to deep red, easy to grow, look in the alpine section of garden centres.

Ivy leaved toad flax is a WEED in our garden, and we dig it out - but I agree, its flowers are quite pretty.

I don't know specifically if there are trailing ones, but Heuchera are very attractive, and virtually evergreen:
