Water regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established in landscape. Take care not to overwater. As groundcover, space plants 12 to 15 in. apart, closer for faster fill. Fertilize sparingly.
Lore The genus is from the Latin verb sedere, to sit, which describes the procumbent growth habit of many species.
