We believe ground covers offer great solutions to many landscape problems: an alternative to patchy turf, reduced maintenance costs under trees and shrubs, a living mulch with less weeding, softening of hardscape edges and less soil erosion on slopes. We are working on an increasing number of native species for naturalization and restoration as well. Explore our commonly offered plants or suggest some new ones we should try! 


We grow most of our plants in 4" (10 cm) pots, but certain species are offered in 1 gallon, growers flats or 36-cell plug trays. Check out individual plant descriptions and the wholesale price list for formats offered.
