Great company with great products
I have been a customer for over 15 years and have been extremely pleased with my purchases. My purchases have made my garden the beauty that it is. Many people on a continual basis stop by, amazed by how beautiful my garden looks and questions where I puchase my plants. I have sent many customers to this company.
My Absolute Favorite Groundcover
I've had this plant for 20 years now and have grown it down by the pond, under the hydrangeas, and around the birdbath. It is extremely hardy, spreads easily without being invasive, very low (1"), evergreen and gorgeous. By several and put them in different places to see how well it does.
Hardy-delicate...a real oxymoron. Pretty, easy to grow
These arrived well packed, and once planted, responded very well to their new home in Southern CA clay soil. Even though it was the middle of our "winter" and lower than 40 degrees at night when planted in a shady spot that got afternoon sun for about 2.5 hours, they bloomed (to my delight) hundreds of pretty purple 'flowerettes' after about eight weeks. Six months later, they are still in flowers, and branching out in all directions. Now I want to buy a lot more, because they really DO stand up to wear and they are a synch to grow. I don't have them in foot traffic areas, but I have seen the hose and the rake go over them more than once (I have a pine tree that sheds constantly) and the gardeners' weekly yard blowing.
