Mazus reptans 'Alba' - Jumbo Landscaping Plugs Description
Also known as cupflower or creeping mazus, Mazus reptans is a fast growing groundcover with hundreds of white blooms in late spring. 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. 'Alba' is the white flowered selection, which is perfect for lighting up shaded areas. The crisp white blooms always look refreshing, and the lush green foliage assures the low-maintenance coverage you expect.
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. It's a beautiful, effective groundcover that pairs with roses, hydrangeas, and evergreens. Plant some spring-flowering bulbs for an unforgettable display!
Creeping mazus does best in moderately moist but well drained soil. It will spread anywhere from 6-12" in a season.
In late spring, hundreds of tubular white flowers with yellow and white markings sing out from the lush mat of green foliage.
