The Flowering Ground Cover You Could Be Replacing Grass With
Grass can demand time, labor, and money, but alternatives like ground cover plants offer low-maintenance and ecological benefits.
Horned violets stand out among ground covers for their resilience and adaptability to various environments. Caring for this devilish sounding flower requires little expertise.
Optimal growth entails partial shade, cooler temperatures, and proper drainage. Deadheading enhances blooming while managing pests like aphids and mollusks safeguards your plants.
In areas with short growing seasons, indoor germination in pots is suggested, providing control over environmental conditions. Regular repotting also maintains the plants' health.
