Mazus reptans Purple - Jumbo Landscaping Plugs Description


Don't settle for the same ho-hum groundcovers everyone else grows - plant something different. Fill your yard with flowers with purple Mazus reptans! Also known as cupflower, mazus is a fast growing groundcover that's covered with orchid-like purple blooms in late spring. It thrives in sun to part shade. 

Neat and tidy little leaves hug the ground and are evergreen in warmer climates.

Plant this useful, unique groundcover anywhere you need color and coverage. It will tolerate foot traffic well and doesn't need mowing or trimming! It's especially nifty for planting between stepping stones or along walkways and paths. Very useful for slopes and other areas you don't want to maintain frequently.

Plugs shipped with foliage entwined -- impossible to separate

Normally I have good experiences when I order from Great Garden Plants. Unfortunately, with the Mazus Reptans wholesale plugs the 32 plants were grown without separators between them so the foliage so they were completely entwined, making them impossible to separate. Any attempt to separate them results in foliage being ripped off the root -- a waste of time and money.
