Not for hot summer climates

Comments about High Country Gardens Arenaria Wallowa Mountains:
I have always loved mossy looking plants for use between stone pavers. But they are not at their best in a climate like Dallas. These were planted in a decomposed granite patio to make sure they had good drainage (our native soil is heavy black clay) and where they received several hours of morning sun, but shade from early afternoon on. We had some unusually heavy rains a month after I planted these and even though the soil drained quickly, I suspect the combination of moisture and warmth is what did them in. One small piece of one plant made it maybe two months.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My 3 Arenaria never revived after planting.
from Onyx, California
These Arenarias did not grow or revive after planting. When I contacted High Country to get a replacement, was told it would be unavailable. Very disappointed.

Giving up after 3 tries
About Me Avid Gardener
OK, I give up on these. I planted them 3 different times, in 3 different places, different orders. I wanted to use them between flagstones and in xeric garden as groundcover. None of the plants survived--they looked ok when planted but quickly expired. The longest lasting ones made it a month. I really wanted these to grow but am over this plant. No more tries.
Bonus white flowers, too!
By Crickets Meyeres

Very sweet plants; I want a flat after trialing two test specimens. I wasn't quite sure where to plant these, so I ended up just sticking them in our red, alkaline soil and hoping for the best. I spring planted. I watered daily right after transplanting, and soon they had little white flowers as shown in the photo! The description in the listing didn't say anything about blooms, so they were a very happy surprise. Time will tell just how water wise they are, I am watering them now every other day and will probably continue to do so throughout the dry, warm weather of their first season, until they get established. Love that they are evergreen.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Small size plant at arrival and remained small all season.

Too small in size and it was not a avid grower.

Plant may partially die off, but be patient. It will grow into an attractive plant.
from Casper, WY
Wish I could order more of this. It is so gorgeous; I can see why it is sold out!
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.
