Re: source for Ground Pine
Hello Kitty, Chris, others..
Yep, I know of Princess Pine, ground pine, running pine... also the same
for cedar. I have the running cedar in my woods. I have not tried for some
years now, but I could never get it to live. I ordered it from wholesale
once and it had obviously been ripped from the wild. Not one potted up
lived. I have tried 3 times to transplants ground cedar from my woods to my
garden and it does not live. Perhaps things have changed over the past few
years, but to the best of my knowledge no wholesale nursery has these
growing in pots with a decent root system. I quite ordering them for I did
not want to be responsible for killing more plants.
Structure of the plant is such that it trails forever on almost no root
system... going back for a single junction that does have support roots.
Will you be receiving well rooted cuttings in containers when you order?
Seed can take 40+ years to germinate, I am told.
I do not want to pop your bubble, but you may want to do a bit more
research. Hopefully you can tell me I am wrong and outdated. Then I will

Doesn't it just figure? I could see a real use for this plant. People
think that all you can grow in shade is Hosta or ferns. I like to find
things like this to show what you can grow. We have successfully
toadlilies to our customers, offering a different one every time. This
plant - I found another common name, Princess Pine - is darling and would
give a different texture to a woodland garden, and it grows only 12 inches
tall. I sent a message to Eastern Plant Specialties to see if they might
have a source for it. I wonder if Gene would know anything about it?
