rosemary - I planted this rosemary about 3 years ago from a small pot bought from Walmart. It is thriving and goes through our harsh winters just fine. It sits in a protected bed on the north end of our house.
Mazus Reptans, a low-growing ground cover which typically grows only to 2" tall spreads by creeping stems which root at the nodes as they go. Narrow, bright green leaves (to 1" long) form a dense carpet. Tiny, tubular, 2-lipped flowers appear in late spring to early summer. Also effective grown between stepping stones or in rock gardens. Tolerates foot traffic. No serious insect or disease problems. Easily grown in average, medium to wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade.
