Tough, beautiful little plant
I like low maintenance plants, particularly evergreens. I'm hard on plants. I forget to water, fertilize, prune. This little groundcover has survived it all and has spread to fill in a small 1'x3' area and is beginning to cascade down the rock wall. I am on the border of zone 6 and 7. It blooms multiple times for me. This plant bloomed in March, May, and now has a few new blooms in late August. It also bloomed a little bit in late June. Last year it bloomed in November as well. Really nice plant and so easy. Even without blooms it is nice to look at - the leaves are spikey needles in a somewhat glossy medium green, nice texture contrast to broad leaf plants. It has also stood up to a little bit of foot traffic - my dogs stand/lay on it occasionally.
