New Plants

June 25th, 2008

I planted 3 new plants today. All three of them are from Stepables. They have such great little plants! I have a few more varieties to plant, but I’ll just post the three I planted today. They are all chartreuse low-growing plants that are great for brightening up dark spots in your garden!

This Scotch moss has tiny white flower blooms (I’ll post one of those later). I planted this in an old birdbath and has a hole in it.

Here’s the information for Scotch Moss.

This small speedwell was planted at the base of the birdbath to brighten a little spot there.

Here’s the information for Golden Creeping Speedwell.

I also planted some Golden Creeping Jenny. I have heard it is invasive, but I planted it where I would love for it to take over, let’s hope it is!

Here’s the information for Creeping Jenny.

    My wife and I have been tempted to hack up a few paths in our yard and go with Stepables, but we are a little dubious that they can hold up to three kids. Whats your thought?

    I read on the Stepables blog that Blue Star Creeper takes a lot of foot traffic. If you go to Fran’s blog (link above in her comment), scroll down to the post dated May 30, 2008. The second question is: “Will my kids/family destroy my STEPABLESĀ®? They have a photo of Blue Star Creeper in a path that 500 people walked on in 2 days. I don’t have any Stepables in areas that get traffic yet, but I will soon, and I think I’ll be using Blue Star Creeper.
