Ground covers
Comments: This is a popular ground cover in the Lower South. It can be quite aggressive because it forms a thick one foot mat of highly competitive growth and can pose a threat to interplanted shrubs and bedding plants. It is normally recommended that plantings be clipped back every year in late winter just before new growth begins. A ground cover planting can tolerate a wide range of growing conditions.
