Design Ideas: When creeping shrubs such as this are used as groundcover, you can plant them through weed-blocking fabric. Thrives in rocky ground, mountainous conditions and where the soil is thin. Use on slopes for coverage or erosion control. Allow it to drape off retaining walls or cover unsightly transition zones at the edges of paving. Excellent deer resistance.

Adaptable and easy to grow in most well-drained soils; avoid overly wet conditions. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Space 6 ft. apart as groundcover; closer for faster coverage. Control weeds with mulch until plants fill in.
