Design IdeasThis is a carefree spreading conifer with bright color that adds welcome contrast to darker shrubs. Use as groundcover or as a low divider between driveways or along the property line. Good low plant that won't obstruct the view from elevated homesites. Ideal filler between upright conifers and broadleaf trees. A candidate for rock gardens, where it spills nicely over boulders and dry stone walls.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
