Great, healthy plants!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I was amazed to receive these whole, healthy plants in a box. Amazing packaging to keep these babies alive for the travel.I followed Jackson Perkins recommendations for planting. I put them in the ground and they look so happy. I look forward to them spreading in the coming months

A Carpeting Color Punch

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I was drawn to this groundcover for its purple foliage. I wasn't disappointed. In my garden, the purple foliage overwinters and makes a nice color addition to a usually lackluster season. It seems to not appreciate a combination of overhead crowding by other plants and a lot of humidity. Otherwise, A. reptans 'Black Scallop' is a rapid grower and a nice color punch to the year-round garden.
