  • We planted this as a ground cover at our home in North Bonneville, WA in the Gorge. We like the dark green color and the tight growth of the leaves. This home is in a windy area--we appreciate that this plant hugs the ground and does not collect leaf debris as other ground covers (even some in our yard) do.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • This is a great shade groundcover for North Texas - specifically Dallas. Survived the heat last summer and the unusually cold/pro-longed freezing weather last winter. It is slow to spread so I would plant a bit closer together than recommended.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • Vigorous grower, needs heavy pruning once or twice a year. Dark green. Good for topiaries!
