Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
A delightful collection of evergreen low-growing, vigorous ground cover plants that will give your garden year-round interest. These plants have a spreading habit and will soon create carpets of colour in your garden borders. Dainty flowers will emerge throughout spring and summer to add to your displays. These low-maintenance plants are ideal for rock gardens, dry sunny banks, wall crevices or the front of borders to add sparkle to your garden. The added beauty of ground cover plants is that they will help suppress weeds, making your borders even easier to manage.
