Ground Cover Plants
Choosing, Locating, Planting and Maintenance
The plant world is full of stand-out flowers, trees, shrubs, and other living things, from dignified palm trees to delicate roses, all keen for attention in the garden or yard. What about the often-overlooked, occasionally forgotten ground cover plants? Far from a throwaway, ground cover plants are some of the most useful, beautiful, and growable plants in nature. They can be used as borders and accents, helping to put the spotlight on paths and other garden features, or they can take center stage, covering an entire lawn, draping elegantly across a rock garden, or billowing out of a container, star of the garden show.

"Hello, this is the first time I have ever written to a mail order company but I have to tell you that you are amazing. I have never seen such healthy, lush beautiful plants.
They far exceeded my expectations. I have ordered plants through the mail many times, never have they come even close to matching the quality of yours. Thank you so much! I will definitely be ordering from you again!"

"I have just received my orders from you, 2 Frizzle Sizzle plants. I wanted to comend you for the excellent and fabulous packaging you provided. I have ordered other plant material elsewhere, and have never gotten my plants in such superior condition. The plants seem as they are right off the shelf with no appearance of any stress or breakage. Thank you so very much."

"Thank you so much for my last order. I was so impressed by the quality that I am back again, sending my husband to the poor house, so he says. My new hobby/obsession sure put's a big smile on my face and an even bigger smile in my heart, if you can understand that. And everyone benefits from that!"
"This is by far the best live plant purchase experience I've had with an Amazon seller. Every plant I ordered is fourishing and healthy, the baby toes are even blooming! The Dyckia plant was larger than I expected and will go perfectly with my collection. Will definitely use these guys again."
