You won't believe how quickly it takes off to make itself at home in your garden. Hundreds of brilliant blue flowers give this ground cover a big presence, even though it only grows 3 inches tall! Tidal Pool is very tolerant of adversity from rain and cold to heat, humidity, and drought. This carefree, drought-tolerant ground cover needs only sunshine and good soil drainage.

Ordered two one has died, other sickly

Disappointing: My last order was exceptional, this one not very good. I am going to blame part of it on the Texas heat and a delay in delivery. Temperatures have been 100+ , I can only imagine in a vehicle . Some of the plants are made for heat and they did ok, but most are shade plants. Never dealt with these flowers and ordered by the picture. What I got looked nothing like the picture, other than the label. Foliage is extremely low less than 1/2 inch tall and looks more like a creeping juniper or something. Don't think it would be something I would like anyway if that's what it grows into. One already dead and the other looks bad and will probably die in another week or two. Reminds me more of Texas goat head stickers.

Settling into the climate not much growth

Hoping this plant takes off like the description stated. It's still early stages, but alive and thriving!

Hello! Thank you for leaving feedback. When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots and flower development. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. We hope this helps. Happy Gardening!

Tidal Pool Speedwell

I’m still hopeful that these plants will grow and spread quickly, bloom, and be a wonderful asset on the little hill I’ve planted them. Despite careful planting in properly conditioned soil; frequent watering and a few well placed rocks to discourage erosion, they honestly don’t look very different from the day I planted them. I’m optimistic, though, that over time, they’ll perk up. I have our bee hives just above this sloped area in hopes that the “girls” will enjoy the flowers. Wish me luck.

Hello! Thank you for leaving a review. It sounds like you are taking great care of your new plants! As I'm sure you're aware, so many factors like weather, soil type, watering, and fertilizing all come into play when it comes to plant growth. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously.

I'm not sure who closely you've placed the rocks to your new plants. But, we often see gardeners place rocks too close to their new plants, which can hurt the plant as it's trying to establish. One of our horticultural experts recommends keeping rocks at least 18 inches away from new plants until they are established.

We hope that this helps. Happy Gardening!

Speedwell Tidal Pool

Plants were healthy when delivered, but it was after their normal bloom time, so hopefully I can keep them alive til next spring & then enjoy their beautiful royal blue color 🤞🏼
