Every gardener needs a COVER STORY

Sorry, we don’t supply alibis. Covering your tracks is not our business.

But groundcovers? That’s another story! Our low-growing spreaders solve problems in the garden. Sun or shade, damp or dry, there’s a cover story to fit any plot.


Ceratostigma plumbaginoides makes for a great low, creeping boarder plant.

Ceratostigma plumbaginoides “Leadwort” is an underappreciated workhorse, and a pretty one! Electric blue flowers persist for months, even when cool nights turn the vigorous green foliage autumn red for a unique, contrasting color combination. Hardy in Zones 6-9.


Pathways pop with Acorus gramineus ‘Pusillus Minimus Aureus

Acorus gramineus ‘Pusillus Minimus Aureus’  “Sweet flag” looks like a grass, grows like a grass and works like a grass. Spoiler alert: it’s not a grass at all. This sweetly fragrant, bright-gold pretender is the 24-karat real deal for moist areas in sun or shade in zones 4 – 11!


Sedums make low-maintenance groudncover

Sedum Sunsparkler® series Sedum is the perfect protagonist for today’s succulent-loving market. Three of our favorite characters, ‘Cherry Tart’, ‘Dazzleberry’ and ‘Lime Zinger’, are available separately, or as a trio in our best-selling “Triple Play Mix.” So versatile, they’ll carry your garden narrative anywhere, from Zone 4 to 9.
