Great Groundcovers

Are you in need of a perennial groundcover?    Heidi Brosseau, our retail manager, is featuring 3 groundcovers.

1)  Snow-in-Summer ‘Silver Carpet’ – Cerastium tormentosum – A silver carpet of petite leaves covers itself in late spring and early summer with a blanketing of white flowers.  It grows 3″ tall by 15″ wide and will fill in quickly.

2)  ‘Summer Daze’ Prunella – a Prunella hybrid.   This vig0rous groundcover blooms all summer long creating a carpet of clean foliage and dainty pink flowers.  Versatile and reliable, it will tolerate hot dry conditions once established.  An excellent selection for erosion control on steep banks and rough slopes.  It grows 12″ tall and wide – and can be grown in full sun to part shade.

3)  Pachysandra – Japanese Spurge.  A versatile groundcover that always looks great.  Dense green foliage creates a classic groundcover for shady borders, under trees and along north facing structures.  Sweetly fragrant white flowers bloom in early spring to a height of 8″-12″.  These plants will fill in an area and stay looking great even into the late fall.  They prefer moist well drained soil and part to full shade.
