Re: Edging Plants - Southeastern US

All of those do well here. And now that I think of it Jim is right about the liriope, it's really used more in masses than as edges. Lot's of massing going on. Our medians are planted with dwarf muhly grass. The Setcreasea gives that great color of course, but it ends up in a mass, rather than an edge whether you want it to or not. I haven't had much luck with Heucheras but I know others that have. What about a lacy Verbena? Would that work?
Or the low growing Ruellia. I have that as a ground cover and it works well. Ajuga grows too slow for me.

Subject: RE: [CHAT] Edging Plants - Southeastern US

The four I have come up with are Hemerocallis - both Stella D'Oro and some
of the new minis that are everblooming.
Setcreasea purpurea Purple Queen, Lirope and Ajuga pyramidalis
Are any of you in the southeastern US growing these? Do you have any
comments on them?
