Mazus reptans 'Alba' Description
Some plants are useful, while others are beautiful. Truly great plants are both. Mazus ‘Alba’ or creeping white mazus is a fantastic looking and performing ground cover. It gets into the garden and covers ground quickly, forming a dense, weed-suppressing mat that grows 2” tall and spreads 6”-12” each season once established. It is ideal for planting between pavers or in areas that get a bit of foot traffic, as it can handle the disturbance with grace. In spring it shows off hundreds of little white blooms and for the rest of the season its cheery, lush foliage keeps the garden looking fresh and in warmer climates it’s evergreen!
