I have both of them Ken... Hillside creeper is one of my favortes. I don't know... I just really like Pines as ground covers.

Aaah Ken, I like BOTH of them. I already had Hillside creeper on my want list from seeing it in a garden while on a trip. Here is a photo of how they grew theirs.

However, I think I like Pinus sylvestris 'Albyns' even better. Thank you for sharing your photos. I'm going to go broke viewing your posts. :)
