Chickweed! It is technically an annual but reseeds like crazy, edible and medicinal and very green all winter unless you have very very cold winters. here is a link to a thread about it http://www.permies.com/t/21501/plants/Chickweed-Stellaria-media-winter-green#298288 I let mine die back in place and it provides a bit of mulch also. It is our winter green drink.
