More Information

Description Clusters of small, orchid-like flowers of Purple Mazus (Mazus reptans) paint the landscape with purple as they bloom in spring! Hundreds of lavender flowers with yellow spots pop against the lush foliage. This fast-growing ground cover quickly forms a dense carpet of green leaves. Purple Mazus spreads rapidly through rooting stems, filling in fast without being a nuisance. This tough-as-nails ground cover even handles foot traffic, making it perfect for difficult spots! Nothing seems to bother this ground cover, including deer and rabbits. Try planting between stepping stones or covering large areas as an alternative to grass. Buying landscape plugs?

Mazus

Very nice plants - very well packaged - healthy and ready to plant. I ended up ordering a 2nd tray and it was just as nice as the first.

None survived

We purchased 82 of these last summer and planted them on a sloped garden bed. The plants were beautiful, lush, and healthy upon arrival with cute little purplish blue flowers, which is why I am giving a 5 star review. We were excited to plant them between two beds of the Japanese stonecrop (gold colored) sedum because the contrast of the two colors was striking. Sadly, none of the purple mazus survived the winter. The sedum did survive and looks great! We also would like to note that, although the description for the purple mazus states that deer and rabbit won't bother them, we found the rabbits to be a definite problem. True to their word, GGP refunded every penny we spent on the purple mazus. We used the refund to order 40 more of their beautiful sedum! We might order a few of the mazus at some point and plant them in a different area to see if they do any better.

Beautiful plants

My plants arrived in beautiful condition! I kept them in the shade/filtered sunlight for a few days per instructions and planted them this morning. I’ve already ordered a second batch.
