Design Ideas: Use this shady groundcover for those hard-to-plant spots--its evergreen trailing stems will look fine year-round. It makes a good groundcover for shrub plantings.

Highly adaptable; prefers enriched, neutral to slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Provide some shade in hot southern areas. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Space 4 to 5 ft. apart as groundcover. Control weeds with mulch until plants fill in.
