Great Underplanting for Evergreens
Dainty white flower clusters are held above foliage shaped like miniature parasols. Good ground cover for shade, even where only moss will grow. Especially tolerant of acidic soil under evergreens. Fresh foliage has little scent, but when dried you will enjoy a refreshing scent of new mown hay. Dry foliage in bundles or make into a garland. Our plant spacing recommendations are based on how quickly these plants will spread in their first season of growth.

Asperula General Information

Asperula does well in any moist well-drained soil. Foliage looks great all season. Perfect for a carpeting groundcover with bulbs as they will emerge through the foliage. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Asperula Plant Care

Divide the creeping root system in spring or early summer after flowering. Separate into rooted sections and then replant immediately. Spent foliage can be cut back after flowering and new growth will appear at the base of the plant. May need supplemental watering during drought conditions.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
