Mazus reptans

Mazus reptans


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...
