Microbiota decussata in Athens

spigiSeptember 16, 2008

I'm looking for a low maintenance ground cover for a section of my yard. My parents live in Delaware and have Microbiota decussata which would be ideal. However, I am unable to find it down here and no one seems to know what I am talking about. The plant encyclopedia my mother has says it is suitable for zones 5-11. Does anyone know anything about this plant? If it isn't suitable for this area, are there any good substitutes?

Bluestone says "Intollerant of Humidity" which should be your giant red flag that it will not perform well here.

Why not just go with Cephalotaxus harringtonia 'Prostrata', Juniperus chinensis var. sargentii,Juniperus horizontalis 'Wiltonii'...

The Buck Jones website lists many others too http://www.buckjones.com/
