Spreads Beautifully! Review by Diana - Portland, OR
Posted on 2009-04-10

"I planted 6 of these last season. They did a fabulous job of filling a very bare, dry area of my garden. The plants quickly spread, bloomed a little and spread some more. A few weeds pop up in them, but not many. I did lose a few to a very long, harsh snow storm, but even some of the dead ones are starting to come back! I'm going to plant more."

seems deer proof! Review by Linda - Export, PA

"I planted this last year in crevices between large boulders at the front of a rain garden. It took well, even in poor soil, and spread really nicely. It even stayed green all winter! I plan to plant a lot more this spring."
