Mazus reptans Description
Mazus reptans is a Fast Growing Groundcover with 100's of blooms in late spring, and it thrives in sun to part shade.
Narrow, 1" leaves form a dense carpet of green that remain attractive from spring-fall. Foliage stays evergreen in warmer climates.
Mazus spreads quickly through rooting stems, and fills in fast without being a nuisance. Ideal for planting between stepping stones (tolerates foot traffic), or covering large areas of soil. Mazus is a striking groundcover plant of small green leaves that lend a beautiful flair to Knock Out Roses, or planting over spring flowering bulbs.
Mazus thrives in a medium moist, but well drained environment where it will spread anywhere from 6-12" in a season.
Late spring, hundreds of tiny, tubular purplish-blue flowers with yellow and white markings adorn the foliage.
Plant Mazus beneath Coneflowers, Hydrangeas, and Knock Out Roses.

Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Easily grown in average, medium to wet, well-drained soil. Prefers moist, rich soils.
Light: Full sun to part shade
Water: Medium to wet -- roots shouldn't stand in water.
Spacing: 6 - 12 inches
Fertilizing: Mazus may not require annual fertilization if the soil is rich. Spring is the best time to fertilize the plants if necessary. Apply a light application of balanced timed release fertilizer, and rinse the leaves thoroughly after applying to prevent leaf burn.
Winterizing: May need to mulch or protect in zone 5.
Maintenance & Pruning: Will tolerate an occasional mowing. Can be divided in spring.
ReviewsWrite a reviewGreat Plants!!Milton H | Sep 15, 2015I received the package on Friday as the tracking indicated. I want to say I was impressed with the packaging of the six plants. I was equally impressed with the quality of the plants. The root system on the plants is outstanding. This is the thing that is lost with plants that are sold by KMart and other places such as this.
Great Plants!!Phillip G | May 20, 2015I received my order today and was, as usual, thrilled with the plants. They were large and healthy, beautifully packaged and preserved for secure and safe shipping (I live on Cape Cod Massachusetts) Great Garden Plants, you are a superior company to deal with and your products are excellent as is your service!I couldn’t be happier.
