About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Arenaria Wallowa Mountains:
We used this plant with great success in our Ohio garden along a sloped driveway with south facing exposure. The soil was hard, rocky and it was extremely hot. Mulched with pea gravel the plants thrived and fave a beautiful moss-like appearance.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not for hot summer climates
By Mac the Gardener
from Dallas, TX
About Me Master Gardener
See all my reviews
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
Merchant response: Good Day,We are so disappointed to hear about your experience! While the Arenaria Wallowa Mountains can tolerate heat, the common killer is often humidity. Unfortunately, the Dallas area is just a little too humid for this variety to tolerate. This humidity intolerance is indicated by the Cowboy Hat symbol on the product page. We sincerely apologize if there was any miscommunication on our part. Please know that we are truly committed to your success which is why we offer a 100% guarantee on all of our products up to a year from the day your order has shipped. A representative will be reaching out to you very shortly to discuss your options. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-800-925-9387Happy Gardening!

Giving up after 3 tries
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.
Merchant response: Good Day Catherine,We are so sad to hear this plant just wouldn't establish itself in your garden! We are not sure what the cause might have been but as you know, we are always ready to receive your feedback and to honor our 100% guarantee. We do see that you were given a product credit for the unsuccessful Arenaria Wallowa Mountains by your request. We hope that you will use that credit towards another groundcover to plant between your flagstones. We currently have a very nice selection of groundcovers that should thrive in the Denver area. Please do let us know if there is anything else we can do for you. Happy Gardening!

Bonus white flowers, too!
By Crickets Meyeres
from Kanab Utah
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.

Small size plant at arrival and remained small all season.

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.
