Details

3-4" tall x 30-36" wide. What an amazing groundcover! After planting it into my garden, I've marveled how this vigorous plant grows to form a silver-gray, evergreen blanket of fine textured foliage, cascading down the slope it's plant on. It blooms in late spring-early summer with sweetly fragrant pink flowers held just above the foliage. Extremely heat and cold tolerant, it's a choice groundcover for the West, from Tucson to Boise, Denver to Reno and beyond.

Q & A

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
