The Quick Color Groundcover Collection is an exceptional trio of showy groundcover plants. Plant in full sun locations to add a layer of visual interest to your garden. Cerastium tomentosum (Jumbo Snow In Summer), discovered by David Salman in Santa Fe, NM, has a larger, and vigorous growth habit that make it an excellent lawn substitute; It produces a carpet of white blooms in late spring. Ceratostigma plumbaginoides (Hardy Plumbago) is one of the most versatile and dynamic groundcovers for cold climates, with deep blue flowers in late summer, and foliage that turns from deep green to burgundy in fall. Thymus serpyllum Coccineum (Red Mother-of-Thyme) is known for a profusion of showy rose-red flowers in late spring to late summer, and grows to form thick mats of tiny evergreen leaves. (Not as xeric as some other varieties, this one needs regular moisture).
Planting groundcovers is a great way to save water and mow less. Groundcovers are some of our most versatile garden plants, and can be used as: lawn replacements, companion plants under taller growing perennials and flowering bulbs, protection from soil erosion, living mulch to shade the ground and conserve water and more! Mature plants range from 3-8" tall x 15-18" wide.
