Design IdeasWhen creeping shrubs such as this are used as groundcover, you can plant them through weed-blocking fabric. Thrives in rocky ground, mountainous conditions and where the soil is thin. Use on slopes for coverage or erosion control. Allow it to drape off retaining walls or cover unsightly transition zones at the edges of paving. Excellent deer resistance.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. As a groundcover, space plants 5 ft. apart, (closer for faster coverage). Control weeds with mulch until the plants cover the area.
