Good cover
Reviewed By: Bob (Rockwood, Tn)
Have had good results with this cover in full shade, slow to get started but took off after a couple of years, it has been dry! Just reordered and intend to water this time!

Best groundcover !!
Reviewed By: Stephen J Summers (Holly, Michigan)
Over eight years ago I planted 16 sprigs and have had great success with cutting transplants by simply putting in the ground. This stuff grows like a weed and does the job !!!

Awesome!
Reviewed By: Lee (E.Bridgewater, MA)
We purchased this product at least 5 years ago. They were little sprigs with roots. I planted just as directed on a northern facing-well drained/dry area of my yard. The plant took about two -three years but is completely filled in and choked out all the weeds and grass! It is a beautiful burgundy all winter and is easy to maintain the length. Just chop it off with a weed wacker! I love it and I have taken the shoots to transplant to other difficult areas of my yard!
