Curated to solve a common challenge for Western gardeners, our Dry Shade Groundcover Collection is drought tolerant and deer resistant. Whether you’re starting a new planting, or enhancing your established garden, you can repeat the collection to fill larger areas or replace lawn that struggles in dry shade. This collection can be grown to create a carpet of color beneath taller perennials, or serve as a low-growing waterwise lawn replacement for turf grass. A great collection to interplant with spring-blooming bulb companions such as Daffodils and Wildflower Tulips.
