Re: Looking for suggestions


Is it time to repeat Walter Brooke's famous line? "I just want to say one word... Plastic."

When I worked in a retail nursery, we described the most-sought-after plant as one that was evergreen, bloomed all year, only grew so tall [hand gesture required here], and grew equally well in dense shade or blazing sun.

I believe it is just very slow draining, staying damp for long
periods.  Not
ideal conditions around the foundation of a structure, I'm thinking.

Also, I guess I was wanting to ask how much water does it hold? Is it
just slow draining or does it actually collect standing water at
times?



Blessings in Christ's mercy,
