RE: runner plants

Are you referring to gooseneck loosestrife and fancy leafed tansy?  I think
6-8" would be plenty deep to stop their run.  If you had Chinese lantern,
you might need to go 10" deep.  At least, that has been my experience. 


Bonnie (SW OH- zone 5)  Who actually got to "play" in the dirt today
planting two new perennials (an astilbe and a dwarf coreopsis) and potting
up some extra stachys (lambs ear) and Jupiter's beard seedlings, as well as
finally getting some weeding done.

Are you referring to two different plants? Or are "local tansy" and 
"gooseneck" two different common names for the same plant? What does it 
look like?
