Mazus reptans Purple Description

Mazus reptans purple 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.

Special Features: Deer Resistant,  Easy Care, Foliage Interest, Heat Tolerant, Multi-seasonal Interest, Pest Resistant, Rabbit Resistant, Season Extender

All I can say is WOW! The plants were a good size and were in excellent shape AND the packing was impeccable. I have ordered from quite a few mail order companies, and I must say, I have rarely received plants of this size and health. Thanks for great and plants and service, I will definitely be ordering again!
