This foliage on this blue green ground cover will make you look twice because they resemble the needles on a blue spruce. While far more fleshy and certainly softer to the touch than blue spruce foliage, the spiky leaves are attractive and aggressive and quickly form a thick groundcover or lawn substitute for hot, sunny, well drained areas. Clusters of yellow star flowers appear in summer creating a sea of gold. This fast grower is so easy to grow and has many landscape uses and is a great choice for using in tubs and mixed containers. Mow in spring if desired. This deer and drought resistant plant is great for rock gardens or to cover gravelly areas and is quick to root and quick to grow better than ever even if you mow it!!.
